Annual Lecture

Exhibiting Stained Glass - Lecture PosterExhibiting Stained Glass in 19th century London and Paris

A talk by Jasmine Allen (Curator, The Stained Glass Museum)

Wednesday 9 May 2018, 6.30 for 6.45pm

Ely Cathedral (south transept)

In this talk we will travel back in time to explore the fascinating, and often surprising, displays of stained glass at International Exhibitions in the 19th century. From London's Crystal Palace to the grand displays along the Champs-Élysées in Paris, we will discover a number of ordinary and spectacular stained glass windows which impressed visitors from across the world. We will also hear about the challenges which these unique environments presented to artists and studios who exhibited stained glass at these events, and the ways in which they have influenced modern museum displays.

Jasmine Allen is Curator of The Stained Glass Museum in Ely Cathedral and has recently completed a book on this subject entitled Windows for the world: Nineteenth-century stained glass and the international exhibitions, 1851–1900 (Manchester University Press, 2018).

This event is open to all.

Tickets: £7.50 / £6 Friends of the SGM or Friends of Ely Cathedral
