Mayer'schez Treppenhausfenster

Franz Mayer of Munich, Germany


"Made in 2012, this visually arresting work of contemporary art embraces the great tradition of medieval Gothic (in its bold primary colours and heraldic essense), Renaissance naturalism (the weaving of the vibrant ruby lattice-work, redolent in its three-dimensionality of Peter Hemmel's plant-form canopies) and incorporates relics of Mayer stained glass dating from the 19th century, selected from Gabriel Mayer's archive of historical fragments." – art historian Martin Harrison in the essay Mayer of Munich – A View from England, from the book Architecture - Glass - Art: Mayer'sche Hofkunstanstalt.

Stained glass window designed by Brian for Mayer’sche Hofkunstanstalt in Munich, set with collaged elements of historical glass manufactured and painted at the Mayer studio.
