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.
