The Nativity

Sir Edward Burne-Jones

Manufacturer: Morris & Co.


Epiphany Chapel, Winchester Cathedral, Hampshire

This is the third in a series of four installed by Morris & Co. in the Norman windows of the chapel, following John Dearle's Visitation scene. It matches the other windows in its setting. This beautiful scene, with its vibrant colours, is featured on the front cover of the local guide to Morris & Co.'s stained glass (see Bond and Dear).
