Just Because Image

Who else remembers this image?

It was 1976 and Robert Jekyll was just beginning to put Artists in Stained Glass together, in Toronto. Out on the west coast this man was already well into his stained glass career, with peers like Dan Fenton, Paul Marioni and Peter Mollica.

Image from 'Stained Glass from Mind to Light', stained glass by Narcissus Quagliata, Stained Glass Suicide - 1975

Anyone want to try and price all that beautiful handmade red antique glass? As I recall this panel was just a bit larger that full size. Narcissus painted, acid etched and broke rules even before we knew there were stained glass rules. What incredible freedom.
