Clayton and Bell Stained Glass template of Chinese [saints] for the [west] window of St. John the Evangelist, Friern Barnet.

1902. A large sketch for a stained glass window, most likely martyrs of the Boxer Rebellion, in which many Chinese Christians were executed in 1900. The design, by Clayton and Bell, one of the preeminent Victorian stained glass workshops, was founded by John Clayton and Alfred Bell in 1855. The two developed glass of remarkable luminosity. The illustration consists of four Chinese figures standing on clouds, the foremost a woman in flowing robes; behind her are a woman and two men wearing hats. The window was designed for St. John the Evangelist in Friern Barnet, in North London, UK. Pencil drawing highlighted with color, 39 1/2 x 18", period folds. Very good overall. Item #19579
