Richard King (1907-1974)

Born in County Mayo, Richard King joined Joshua Clarke & Sons in Dublin and was encouraged by Harry Clarke to enrol at the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art to study stained glass. He became the firm's chief designer after Clarke's death in 1931, and succeeded Charles Simmonds as manager in 1935. King left to establish his own stained glass studio in Dalkey in 1940, and many examples of his work may be found in Ireland. He also worked as a painter and illustrator, and designed stamps.
