Exeter has been offered a rare opportunity: to purchase a pair of stained glass windows designed and executed by William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones, less than 10 years after these illustrious Exonians left the College.
The windows portray the parables of The Labourers in the Vineyard, Solomon Building the Temple, Noah Building the Ark and Christ with Three Disciples and they are in good condition, lying uninstalled in a church in North London.
The College is keen to acquire these pieces of art which were created by two of its most influential 19th century alumni. Alison Brooks, Cohen Quad’s architect, proposes to incorporate the windows into our new campus, thus merging Exeter’s past, present and future.
If you would like to help us with the project or would like more information on the windows, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org in the Development Office.
