[Pre-Raphaelite Stained Glass Watercolor Design- Thomas WIlliam Camm, Camm Studios] Five Small Panes: Series of Small Watercolor Sketches for "The Cottars Saturday Night
Mounted on cardboard.Five small watercolor sketches (18 x 4 cm total) by Thomas William Camm (1839-1912), founder, chief artist/designer and manufacturer of stained glass in England, opening operation in 1865 as Camm Brothers in Smethwick, and later, "The Studio." Thomas Camm was one of the most accomplished stained glass designers of the period. The American architect Ralph Adams Cram wrote "at the present moment a large number of artists in England are producing work of most singular beauty and perfection. Amongst these I have no hesitation in placing Mr. Camm easily as the first". His daughter Florence Camm produced most of the artwork for the company after his death in 1912. The studio won medals in Paris in 1878, Sydney in 1879 and in Turin in 1911 and commissions came in from America, Spain, New Zealand and India. Dozens of churches, institutions and private homes in England still boast stained glass windows designed by Camm and his daughter. Signed by Camm in initials lower right. Also holograph notation below, "T.W. Camm Smethwick The Cottars Saturday Night No. 1605." Reminiscent of Thomas Rowlandson. Scarce thus. Provenance: Directly from Camm Studio Estate.
