Jane Gray (b.1931)

Design for an Illuminated Panel of Stained Glass in a Private House (1994)



10 x 15.5 cm

Signed and dated verso.

This design for a domestic window in a Bristol house was the second commission Gray received from this client. Having previously created a panel of eight squares featuring red floral designs, Gray was now faced with the challenge of another eight panel series, this time of fruits, which the client wanted to look as natural as possible. Gray succeeded in completing this effect, the screen featuring 8 bordered roundels containing apples, grapes, pineapple, starfruit, melon, bananas, pears, and citrus fruits.

Provenance: the artist’s studio sale.
