Stained Glass of Buckinghamshire Churches


Windows by HE Wooldridge - Artist

Harry Ellis Wooldridge (28 March 1845 - 13 February 1917) was an English musical antiquary, artist and Professor of Fine Arts. His music collections included transcripts of 17th and 18th century Italian music. He enrolled at the Royal Academy in 1865,[1] becoming interested in early music at about the same time. He was studio assistant to Sir Edward Burne-Jones and later worked with Henry Holiday, the chief designer for James Powell and Sons, stained glass makers. Wooldridge was retained by Powell's and designed stained glass and tile paintings for more than twenty years. His church commissions included a reredos for St Martin's Church in Brighton (described as his chef d'ouvre), and the painting of frescoes in St John at Hampstead. His growing authority on early music led to his 1895 appointment, succeeding John Ruskin as Slade Professor of Fine Art at Oxford.
