Stained Glass of Buckinghamshire Churches


Windows by Travers, H Martin O - Maker

Martin Travers (born Howard Martin Otho Travers, in Margate, Kent on 19 February 1886 - died in London on 25 July 1948) was an English church artist and designer. Travers was educated at Tonbridge School, entered the Royal College of Art in 1904, and took his Diploma in Architecture in 1908. At the College he studied architecture under Arthur Beresford Pite, for whom he went on to work intermittently, and stained glass under Christopher Whall. He worked for a time until 1911 as an assistant to Ninian Comper. Travers was perhaps the most influential British stained glass artist in the second quarter of the twentieth century. From 1919 until 1926 he rented a studio at Lowndes & Drury's The Glass House, Fulham. Lowndes & Drury continued to cut, fire, glaze and fix his windows after he established his own studio. Travers was awarded the Grand Prix for stained glass at the International Exposition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Arts in Paris in 1925. That same year he succeeded Christopher Whall, who died in 1924, as chief instructor in stained glass at the Royal College of Art, a position he held until his death. Wikipedia
