Burne-Jones's Other Windows in the Cathedral

  • The Ascension
  • The Nativity
  • The Crucifixion
  • This early eighteenth-century church was extended in 1883-84 by J(ulius) A(lfred) Chatwin (1830-1907), who produced a full new chancel for it. For this, Burne-Jones designed three glorious windows on subjects of his own choosing. Despite the fact that he had complained about the remuneration for this huge task (see Georgiana Burne-Jones, Vol. 2: 172), he undertook this other window later — the equally glorious west window, on the subject of the Last Judgment.
