Description

In 1862 the Bradford merchant Walter Dunlop commissioned a series of stained glass windows from Morris, Marshall, Faulkner and Company. The resulting set of thirteen windows illustrated the story of Tristram and Iseult and was installed in Dunlop's home, Harden Grange, near Bingley in Yorkshire. This is one of four subjects that Morris made for the commission. Studies for two of the designs Burne-Jones contributed are included in the exhibition. The other artists involved were Madox Brown, Rossetti, Arthur Hughes and Val Prinsep. The thirteen stained glass windows can now be found in Bradford City Art Gallery.
