Stained glass window

stained glass windowAlbert Joseph Moore was a well known English artist born in 1841 in the city of York, the fourteenth child of a portrait painter, William Moore. His father taught him to paint as a child and when he died the family moved to London, and Albert finished his education at Kensington Grammar School. He became a member of the Royal Academy in 1858, travelling to Rome and France in pursuit of further artistic knowledge and inspiration.

He became a member of the Royal Academy in 1858.

He was known for his depictions of languorous female figures set against the luxury and decadence of the classical world, and his works included Battledore and Shuttlecock, both of which are dated 1868 -70 and include women holding battledores and shuttlecocks. He died in 1893.

Two stained glass panels were produced based on these original oil paintings probably in 1872, and a copy of the Batledore stained glass panel is displayed in the National Badminton Museum, being the first item seen, hung at the bottom of the stairs.
