Stained Glass in Wales | Gwydr Lliw yng Nghymru

Charles Eamer Kempe (1837-1907)

Painted walls, ceilings and woodwork in churches during the 1860s before establishing his own stained glass company, C. E. Kempe & Co. in London in 1869. Although he was not a trained artist, he had designed windows for Clayton & Bell and his ideas were interpreted by the members of his studio. His methods were influenced by sixteenth-century work from Flanders and Northern Germany.
