St Paul by Charles Eamer Kempe, 1899, in the north transept of York Minster. Here, St Paul is seen in the context of the whole lancet, on the same pattern as the window showing St. Peter, and others in this part of the Minster (n11-15), with symbolic motifs above and below. According to the Minster's draft conservation plan, drawn up in 2021, Kempe incorporated some medieval glass in the windows, and designed all five in a fifteenth-century style, so that they makea uniform set: "Four of the windows contain figures of saints, and all have backgrounds of quarries painted with yellow stain. They are not of exceptional quality in terms of design, but their style is sympathetic to that of the incorporated medieval glass." For that reason, their conservation was considered important.
