Stained Glass of Buckinghamshire Churches

Makers Marks by John Ninian Comper

Sir John Ninian Comper (10 June 1864 - 22 December 1960) was a Scottish-born architect. While still studying drawing, and before being articled to G. F. Bodley, the young Ninian Comper assisted at the stained glass studio of C. E. Kempe. What he learned there inspired a lasting love of the medium, and he would work in it, to acclaim, for the rest of his long life. He was one of the last of the great Gothic Revival architects, noted for his churches and their furnishings. He is well known for his stained glass, his use of colour and his subtle integration of Classical and Gothic elements which he described as unity by inclusion. (Victorian Web & Wikipedia)
