Victorian Art can be seen in churches as well as in art galleries. This is a detail from a Victorian stained glass window in Oxford Cathedral. Burne-Jones designed it for his friend William Morris.  It is reproduced from the cover of Ann S.  Dean's book Burne-Jones and William Morris.  Burne-Jones was a great painter but he also designed many windows. Ann S. Dean's book gives the phone numbers needed to see some of his finest windows in Oxford and the Cotswolds.

Another stained glass artist was C.E. Kempe.
