The Procession of Saint Agnes - Stained Glass Design

About this artwork

This watercolour is a design for a series of glass panels depicting a celebratory procession for Saint Agnes. Gauld uses vibrant, bold outlines and simple decorative elements of glass design. His early work was inspired by the designs of Rossetti and Burne-Jones, and anticipated the Art Nouveau movement in Scotland. Gauld studied part-time at Glasgow School of Art from 1882–1885, where he was friends with Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928) and, like Mackintosh, was particularly interested in the decorative arts. He became a successful designer of ecclesiastic and domestic stained glass, and was appointed Director at the School of Design, Glasgow School of Art, in 1935.
