Paul  Green

Derby, United Kingdom

Artist's Description

This stained glass window is in Derby Cathedral.
The Cathedral of All Saints (known as Derby Cathedral), is a cathedral church in the City of Derby, England. It is the seat of the Bishop of Derby, and is the smallest Anglican cathedral in England.
The cathedral contains the oldest ring of ten bells in the United Kingdom. Other treasures include an eighteenth-century nave with a wrought iron Rood screen by Robert Bakewell, the memorial to Bess of Hardwick, and the Cavendish brasses, including those of Henry Cavendish and Georgiana Spencer, the wife of one of the Dukes of Devonshire.
According to the Derby Mountain Rescue Team the cathedral tower is 212 feet (65 m) tall.
Ceri Geraldus Richards (1903–1971) was a British painter and print-maker.
Richards entered the Royal College of Art in 1924.
Afterwards Richards spent most of his life in London, apart from a period teaching art in Cardiff.
In 1929 he married Frances Clayton, a fellow artist. His work gradually moved towards surrealism after exposure to the work of Picasso and Kandinsky.
In 1964-5 he designed stained glass for Derby Cathedral and in 1965 was commissioned to design the Blessed Sacrament Chapel at Liverpool Roman Catholic Cathedral.
