UPPER LIGHT AT LOWICK CHURCH, NORTHAMPTONSHIRE: FOUR FINE EXAMPLES OF MIDDLE GOTHIC WORKMANSHIP

UPPER LIGHT AT LOWICK CHURCH, NORTHAMPTONSHIRE: FOUR FINE EXAMPLES OF MIDDLE GOTHIC WORKMANSHIP

Some of the most remarkable stained glass of the Decorated period is preserved in the church at Lowick, Northamptonshire. At one time evidently the whole of it belonged to one large window designed to illustrate the Tree of Jesse, but was broken up and the pieces used to fill the upper lights of the four windows of the north aisle. The westernmost of these four lights is shown in the bottom right photograph, the next in order from east to west being the bottom left, top left, and top right. All are singularly clear and beautiful examples of fourteenth century or Middle Gothic glass, moderately deep in colour and naturalistic in design. The lower lights are plain glass.
