Heaton, Butler & Bayne, Covent Garden, London, England, 1862–1953
64 x 24 in

Founded in 1855 by a glass painter, Clement Heaton (1824–82), and a lead glazier, James Butler (1830–1913), and joined in 1862 by a Pre-Raphaelite artist, Robert Turnill Bayne (1837–1915), Heaton, Butler & Bayne of London became one of the leading stained-glass producers in the world. Bayne's extraordinary linear designs were translated using Heaton’s vast palette of colors, which he developed through studies of medieval glass. The company’s work combined the traditions of the Gothic Revival with the vivid colors and textural effects of the Pre-Raphaelites.
