Painting on Light

Drawings and Stained Glass in the Age of Dürer and Holbein

The names Albrecht Dürer and Hans Holbein the Younger evoke the dazzling accomplishments of Renaissance panel painting and printmaking, but they may not summon images of stained glass. Nevertheless, Dürer, Holbein, and their southern German and Swiss contemporaries designed some of the most splendid works in the history of the medium. This lavish volume is a comprehensive survey of the contribution to stained glass made by these extraordinarily gifted draftsmen and the equally talented glass painters who rendered their compositions in glass. Included are discussions of both monumental church windows and smaller-scale stained-glass panels made for cloisters, civic buildings, residences, and private chapels. The subjects of these rarely seen drawings and panels range from religious topics to secular themes, including love, planets, hunts, and battles. Focusing on stained glass produced in Germany and Switzerland from about 1495 to 1530, Painting on Light includes drawings by Dürer, Holbein, Albrecht Altdorfer, Hans Baldung Grien, Jörg Breu the Elder, Hans Burgkmair, Urs Graf, Hans von Kulmbach, Hans Leu the Younger, Niklaus Manuel Deutsch, Hans Schäufelein, Hans Weiditz, and others. This informative book is published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Getty Museum from July 11 through September 24, 2000, and from November 7, 2000, to January 4, 2001, at the Saint Louis Art Museum.

Chapter Thirteen, Painting for Stained Glass, from the Stained Glass Association of America's Reference & Technical Manual, Second Edition. The use of glass paint and silver stain has enriched the lives of stained glass artists more than most of us realize. Paint fired on glass was the first surface treatment of glass in leaded windows. The term 'stained glass, ' however, resulted from the later use of silver stain which, upon firing, permeates the glass and actually 'stains' it. The glass and lead of stained glass windows sets the stage for a story or concept, and the paint and stain supply the information that defines and communicates that story. Stained glass windows fill our world with the beauty of line and color and can be enhanced with the addition of paint or stain, adding further line and shading for form and definition. Admittedly, it is possible and plausible to design and construct many windows without paint, but eliminating the paint from others would deprive us of much of their beauty, and a vast storehouse of information and intellectual stimulation would be missing. Time and the elements have taken their toll on many of these windows, but those that remain still retain a great deal of the information the painter supplied. Since glass paints are almost as permanent as the glass itself, painting done today will be a part of the glass for a very long time. Knowing this, glass painters have a responsibility to themselves and to the future to see that what is painted on glass now is their best, both technically and artistically. It is hoped that the information in this section will help many in their quest for knowledge and furnish all with a respect for glass painting. Done well, painting can add a new dimension to glass work. It provides the ability to add lines and lettering, create texture and shading, and add some color in selected areas. Before learning to paint it is prudent to know as much about this medium as possible. The history of painting, the technical information about the paints and the tools used, all provide a background to the painting techniques themselves. These techniques, such as tracing, matting, silver staining, and enameling, are basic, but other uses for paints, such as silk screening, air brushing, etc., can prove invaluable in many instances.

This book focuses on the aesthetic, symbolic, and cultural concepts of radiance and beauty in stained glass in modern art; global exchanges between stained-glass artists in Europe and the Americas; and the transformation of stained glass from religious decoration to secular material culture. Unique features of the book include its geographic breadth, encompassing England, France, Italy, USA, and Mexico, and its inclusion of American female glassmakers. Essays consider how stained glass became an art form during this time, and show how the narrative for the figurative design drew from the Bible, mythology, history, literature, and the symbolism of the time, including popular culture such as ecology and materiality. Written for students and the general public interested in the humanities, literature, history, art history, and new media and popular culture, this book examines the visual beauty and symbolism of stained-glass windows in Europe and American cultures during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries – the modern era.
