early twentieth century

Single-light window with standing figure of Christ knocking at a door, derived from the famous painting by William Holman Hunt.

size: 65 cm (width)
firm/studio: Robert J. Newbery

Church of St Peter, Glasbury, Powys
south wall of the nave

The window could be contemporary with the Boer War memorial window by the same firm.

Text: 'I am the light of the World".


A particularly weak derivative from Holman Hunt, albeit a typical work by the firm. Note the curious placing of the pot of lilies - emblem of the Virgin Mary and associated with the Annunciation - on the doorstep.
