St Luke + St. John

Edward Burne Jones & William Morris window at St. Nicholas’ Church, Shropshire. The former designed the windows and the latter made them. It was the custom to use again the cartoon of a particular figure in more than one window, fitting it into a new design like a piece in a jigsaw puzzle. Both the figures of St. John and St. Luke have been used and are to be found in the windows of the chapel of Jesus College, Cambridge.

The two smaller panels beneath the figures are by Ford Maddox Brown, another distinguished Pre-Raphaelite artist. One of those also is to be found at Jesus College, Cambridge and the other at Holy Cross, Haltwhistle in Northumberland.
