Original Stained Glass Window

Harry Clarke Studios:
“St. Patrick,” large Rose window consisting of 9 panels, approx. 183cms (6′) in diameter, now partly displayed in a temporary frame.
* This window was also the subject of letters from William Dowling in the final months of the studios. It had been commissioned for a seminary in Enugu, Nigeria, in the mid 1960s. Dowling wrote to the priest who had commissioned the window, asking for instruction. He explained that the outbreak of war in Biafra had made delivery of the window inadvisable on completion, until such time as the studios knew ‘whatever had happened to the church’. Dowling did not receive a reply to his letter and the window joined the other items on David Clarke’s list of items for long-term storage.
Provenance:
Collection of the late David Clarke. (1)
