[Camm Studios: Pre-Raphaelite Stained Glass Watercolor Design- Thomas William Camm, Camm Studios] Exquisite 9-panel, 18-Part Watercolor Designs for Stained Glass Windows, Camm Studio

Smethwick: ca. 1870-1880.

Spectacular large (elephant folio size) nine-part watercolor panel consitsting of a total of 18 separate watercolor and pencil designs of stained glass (with glossy protective sheen) arranged in three rows on hinges (entire dimensions: 13 x 26 inches) Each individual design has a two part addition at top, making each design a three-part entity. The size of each design (including all three parts) is 1 1/4 x 9 inches. Thomas William Camm (1839-1912), founder, chief artist/designer and manufacturer of stained glass in England, opened operation in 1865 as Camm Brothers in Smethwick, and later, "The Studio." Thomas Camm was one of the most accomplished stained glass designers of the period. The American architect Ralph Adams Cram wrote "at the present moment a large number of artists in England are producing work of most singular beauty and perfection. Amongst these I have no hesitation in placing Mr. Camm easily as the first". His daughter Florence Camm produced most of the artwork for the company after his death in 1912. The studio won medals in Paris in 1878, Sydney in 1879 and in Turin in 1911 and commissions came in from America, Spain, New Zealand and India. Dozens of churches, institutions and private homes in England still boast stained glass windows designed by Camm and his daughter. Very well-preserved, with minor wear to some pieces, near fine. Provenance: Directly from Camm Studio Estate Sale many years ago. With inventory number by Camm Studios at bottom left: DE 11287. Most scarce thus.
