It is always a privilege to stand beneath one of his windows and marvel at the artist's genius. His chosen and commissioned subjects all come to life. They haunt your dreams, the characters holding your attention with their luminous eyes.
Harry Clarke's ever-growing reputation around the world make it increasingly hard to find books about the artist. This is a newly published marvellous work about his stained glass. As the publisher historypress.ie says
"In total 160 windows, and a small number of panels, were created by Harry Clarke. This book is unique in that it contains his entire stained-glass collection, including those windows now in art galleries. This collection has never before been photographed or published in its entirety."
Costigan and Cullen, the authors, have thoroughly researched Harry's works, consulting with such experts as Nicola Gordon Bowe, and are to be congratulated on this beautiful and engrossing book. I hope they will publish more about Harry Clarke's work, his sketches, illustrations and graphic art. The plates are astounding, making this book a work of art in itself. Due for release on May 1, it is highly recommended
