Charles J. Connick’s Adventures in Light and Color: An Introduction to the Stained Glass Craft (1937) was copiously illustrated. Of particular interest are multiple copies of 35 colored plates of stained glass windows, window details, medallions, and patterns that remain from the set of 42 printed for the book in France and Belgium. Eighteen of the plates are taken from paintings by Charles Connick. Each color design is mounted on an 8 1/2 inch by 12 inch black background. In addition, colored plates published in Connick’s article, “Modern Glass – a Review: Present-Day Artists and Craftsmen Are Carrying on Splendid Traditions of the Ancient Art of Stained Glass,” International Studio (October 1924) are available.
These prints may be obtained by contacting Hammersmith Studios, at 978 269 5424, or by email.
