1907

Three-light window. Christ, as Good Shepherd, depicted in the central light, amid disciples, and Peter, kneeling before him. Seascape with boats in the background.


firm/studio: Robert J. Newbery

Church of St Michael, Llanfihangel Rhydithon, Powys
east wall of the chancel (window number: I)

The window is attributed to J. Stephenson of Bath in The Buildings of Wales: Powys, but the window was made by Robert Newbery of London. It is included in a list of works made by the artist in a letter of October 1907 and poses of the figures can be found in other windows by the studio.

Texts: 'Feed my Sheep; Feed my Lambs' (John 21). 'Jesus Christ the same yesterday and to day and for ever' (Hebrews 13:8).
