Jane Gray (b.1931)

St James’ Church, Weddington, Nuneaton, Warwickshire, Design for Stained Glass Memorial Window (1989)



19 x 10.5 cm

Signed, dated and studio stamp verso.

St James’ Church in Weddington dates back to the early-14th-century. The chancel, nave, and west tower were rebuilt in red brick in 1733, and the building was restored in 1881, when Gothic windows were inserted in place of the 1733 details. This design fantastically demonstrates Gray’s modernist style, with her colourful palette and simple yet detailed, geometrical structure. This window was installed in 1990.

Provenance: the artist’s studio sale.

Literature: Jane Gray, Playing with Rainbows. (Shropshire: Ellingham Press, 2011), p.80.

Condition: very good.
