SGM Autumn Talks: Art & Biography of Henry Payne 1867-1940

October 3, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us for the first of our autumn lecture series for this afternoon talk by Caroline Swash ADT FMGP

Henry Payne (1867-1940) was a late Pre Raphaelite Artist Craftsman. He exhibited at the Royal Academy in the 1890s, trained with Christopher Whall in stained glass making in 1901 and then ran the glass course at Birmingham School of Art until 1908. As a painter he is best known for his murals in the Chapel of Madresfield Court and ‘The Choosing of the Red and White Roses’ in the Palace of Westminster, both commissioned by Earl Beauchamp. Payne moved to Gloucestershire in 1909 where he set up the ‘St Loe’s Guild’ in Amberley with his growing family of three sons, one of whom Edward Payne (my father) became his assistant and successor. Henry’s most beautiful work can be seen around Malvern and the Cotswolds, with fine windows in Yorkshire (Roker, Calton in Cleveland and Hutton Rudby. His most prestigious commission was Britain’s gift to France, stained glass for the Memorial Chapel at Notre Dame de Lorette.
