Cliffe Castle Museum - Stained glass - 2

 

A close-up of one of the panels in the series - the death of Sir Tristram. From Wikipedia:

 

"The Tristram and Isoude stained glass panels are a series of 13 small stained-glass windows made in 1862 by Morris, Marshall, Faulker & Co. for Harden Grange, the house of textile merchant Walter Dunlop, near Bingley in Yorkshire, England. Depicting the legend of Tristan and Iseult, they were designed by six of the leading Pre-Raphaelite artists of the day, to an overall design by William Morris. They were acquired in 1917 by Cartwright Hall Art Gallery, which is now part of Bradford Museums & Galleries. They can be seen on display at Cliffe Castle, Keighley."

 

The designs were by Morris and five of his friends, Rossetti, Burne-Jones, Val Prinsep, Arthur Hughes and Ford Madox Brown. This one was designed by Madox Brown.

So were these acquired by the Gallery before being fitted anywhere else, Tom?

I see also King Mark and La Belle Isoude - a very fine stained glass!

A tragic tale Tom, but fine stained glass to depict it.
Glorious Tom.
Interesting with the dog and faces in the window.

The guy in the green dress seems to be getting ready to cut the woman in burgundy away from the man in the red/orange pantyhose. It would be a shame as he seems to be enjoying her attention.
Very well done window isn't it.
