Jane Gray (b.1931)

St Paul’s Church, Marton, Design for Stained Glass Window (1984)



25.5 x 14 cm

Signed, dated and artist label verso.

Worship at Marton, a township-chapelry in Poulton-le-Fylde parish, Lancashire, began in 1760 but it wasn’t until 1800 that Marton got it’s own church dedicated to St Paul. Gray’s vibrant design for the church’s south wall window depicts the stages of creation against a swirling night sky and features the biblical line, ‘and God saw that it was good’, from Genesis 1:31. This design fantastically demonstrates Gray’s modernist style, with her simple yet detailed, geometrical delineation of her subjects.

Provenance: the artist’s studio sale.

Condition: very good.
