Evening

Bossanyi is perhaps best known for his work in stained glass, with windows in Canterbury and Washington Cathedrals, the New West End Synagogue and the Tate Gallery in London. He was also a versatile designer who worked in many media - sculpture, metalwork, ceramics - as well as being a prolific painter. This panel is a replica of a panel, with some details changed, of a window made for the Volkschochschule, near Hamburg. When the Nazis rose to power in Germany Bossanyi emigrated to England taking these replica panels with him as an example of his work.
