Description: ATTRIBUTED TO MARGARET CHILTON (1875-1962)
SET OF THREE STAINED GLASS PANELS, EARLY 20TH CENTURY
each with painted and stippled decoration depicting figural representations of three seasons, with inscriptions for SPRING, AUTUMN and WINTER, 89 x 28cm; together with a later MATCHED GLASS PANEL, BY PHILIP CROOK, of similar design and technique, with inscription for SUMMER, 89 x 28cm; all in museum standard frames (4)

Notes: Note: Margaret Chilton (1875-1962) was born in Bristol and trained at the Royal College of Art in London under the leadership of stained glass artist Christopher Whitworth Whall (1849-1924). In 1918 she moved to Glasgow where she taught at the Glasgow School of Art for a short time and met her future pupil Marjorie Boyce Kemp (1886-1975). The pair moved to Edinburgh in 1922 where they set up a successful stained glass studio, and often worked on commissions together. They regularly painted on hand blown 'antique' or 'slab' glass, employing stippling as decoration to their work. It may be therefore, that Kemp also had a hand in these panels given the similarity of technique and the collaborative pieces they produced. Chilton in particular was strongly committed to the Arts and Crafts beliefs and methodologies in stained glass: she not only created the design, she also chose every piece of glass herself, designed all the leads and tie bars, decided which pieces she would paint and how, and then she made the stained glass.
