Attributed to John Henry Dearle
Two large Victorian hand painted glass panels, one depicting a forest and river scene with Highland cattle, the other with two man fly fishing. Excellent quality with a 3D depth to the painting almost like a painting on canvas, also with silver stain and enamel paints. Both finished with ½” outer lead and hanging hooks attached.
John Henry Dearle (1860 – 1932) British textile and stained glass designer trained by Pre-Raphaelite artist William Morris. Dearle designed wallpaper, textiles and tapestry designs for Morris & Co., and contributed background and foliage patterns to tapestry designs by Edward Burne-Jones. Dearle rose to become Morris & Co.’s Chief Designer & Art Director of the firm by 1890, and in 1898 became its principal stained glass designer on the death of Burne-Jones.
