Stained glass can be thought of as a decorative adjunct to architecture or as fine art productive of a wide variety of rich and deep experiences in the beholder. Although both aspects are covered in this book, it is glass as fine art that concerns the author - from the unique wondrous beauty of the windows of Europe's great cathedrals to the much later masterpieces of Tiffany, LaFarge and today's artists. Treating the subject chronologically, he explores the chronological background to each period in order to establish the motivation of the society and the intentions of the artists who caused a particular kind of stained glass to come into being. There are enquiries into the changing meaning of colour, the influence of other contemporary arts (architecture, painting, tapestry, ceramics, illuminated manuscripts), the origin of glass and the manner in which, in early times, ideas travelled from one region to another. There are also accounts of how stained glass windows are made and descriptive analyses of the beauty of individual works. Patrick Reyntiens considers late developments in the 20th century. Among these is the rise of the studio panel of stained glass or glass emancipated from the constraints of modern architecture, of which he himself is a practitioner.

"John Piper (1903-92) was unquestionably one of the most versatile British artists of the twentieth century. A great admirer of Picasso, he was at the cutting edge of many elements of the British art scene." "Although best known for his paintings, Piper has achieved the highest respect for his works in stained glass and ceramics, his stage, set and costume designs, art-critical writings, and his large corpus of prints. The prints are innovative, lively and continuously challenge the medium." "This book is the first catalogue of Piper's entire graphic work to be published, and completes the record started by Orde Levinson's 1987 catalogue raissone of Piper's prints. This new updated catalogue incorporates prints produced between 1987 and Piper's death in 1992, as well as newly discovered earlier prints. All works are illustrated (with all colour works reproduced in colour), and the corpus of prints includes etchings, aquatints, wood engravings, lithographs and screenprints." "In order to show the importance of the prints in the wider context of Piper's life and work, Order Levinson has included a short essay on Piper's prints; biographical notes; and lists of Piper's designs for stage sets, stained glass and tapestries, which often relate to his prints. The reference material is now certainly the most comprehensive ever compiled on Piper, and allows the reader to survey the development of his artistic concerns." "This is the definitive study of the prints of John Piper, and will enable all readers to appreciate his mastery anew."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Fifty years after the Second Vatican Council, architectural historian Robert Proctor examines the transformations in British Roman Catholic church architecture that took place in the two decades surrounding this crucial event. Inspired by new thinking in theology and changing practices of worship, and by a growing acceptance of modern art and architecture, architects designed radical new forms of church building in a campaign of new buildings for new urban contexts. A focussed study of mid-twentieth century church architecture, Building the Modern Church considers how architects and clergy constructed the image and reality of the Church as an institution through its buildings. The author examines changing conceptions of tradition and modernity, and the development of a modern church architecture that drew from the ideas of the liturgical movement. The role of Catholic clergy as patrons of modern architecture and art and the changing attitudes of the Church and its architects to modernity are examined, explaining how different strands of post-war architecture were adopted in the field of ecclesiastical buildings. The church building’s social role in defining communities through rituals and symbols is also considered, together with the relationships between churches and modernist urban planning in new towns and suburbs. Case studies analysed in detail include significant buildings and architects that have remained little known until now. Based on meticulous historical research in primary sources, theoretically informed, fully referenced, and thoroughly illustrated, this book will be of interest to anyone concerned with the church architecture, art and theology of this period.
