Burrell Collection - medieval stained glass

such a sight for sore eyesglowing wings of angels
precious colours set alight in glass the Burrells collection of stained glass
such a perfect place for my research
on medieval art

with imagination set alight and thoughts of a world long gone
i found so very much to explore and soak up
amazed at this, the work of those distant craftsmen

such a stunning collection of art work
gifted by Sir William Burrell and his wife to Glasgow in 1944
The Burrell collection in Glasgow is made up of a vast array of works
of all periods and from all over the world.

  1. I think medieval art is about my favorite, for so many things (stained glass, illumination, alter paintings, etc...)

    These are gorgeous.


Thank you for stopping by my wee corner of blog land, I love to hear from you all and will visit as soon as I can.
