Stained Glass In The National Gallery…

Hey all, it is genuinely an honour to be asked to be in at the ground level of a project like this, thanks lads. I’m more normally found on my blog HERE or on the radio HERE so being part of a community like this will be an interesting challenge.

A short one tonight but one I thought about over the weekend when I was in the National Gallery. There are parts of it I adore and parts that I regularly avoid (Irish painting of the 18th and 19th century springs to mind!) but there’s currently an exhibition there that’s well worth taking in.

Not that I knew it before Saturday but Evie Hone was a pioneering artist both in abstract paintings and, later, in stained glass. The exhibition is right next door to my favourite part of the gallery – the room that houses Jack B Yeats’ painitings and is well worth checking out.

More and more surreal and unusual later…
