A Stained Glass Design for the Ascension of Christ
An original watercolor created by the artists Thomas William Camm (British, 1839-1912) for a Church commission, c. 1880. Camm is considered one of Great Britain's most talented designers of stained glass. Before production on a monumental work of stained glass was begun, Camm would create a series of conceptual sketches. This is a final study shows depicts the stained glass in the final carved stone surroundings. More than twenty figures are drawn and in bright watercolors. Christ stands near the top, with angels on either side. Directly below, are Christ disciples, including the Apostles and Mary. Below the apostles is another scene, depicting Peter's miraculous release from prison.
