|Start Date:||8th February 2019|

Harry Clarke is the most famous stained glass artist to emerge from out of Ireland in the early years of the twentieth century. His stained glass work was not just religious commissions but also included many secular commissions. Alongside the stained glass work, Clarke also gained an international reputation as a book illustrator. What is certain, is that Harry Clarke should be far more recognized for his contributions to the development of Irish and International Art in the early years of the twentieth century.

I thoroughly enjoyed the two times that I've come to speak at Dillington House. I found the audiences to be engaged, receptive and welcoming. Somerset needs a venue like this, I hope it goes from strength to strength and I'd love to come back and speak again.
