Strangest Genius: The Stained Glass of Harry Clarke
Shortlisted for Irish Published Book of the Year 2010 Harry Clarke (1889 to 1931) was undoubtedly Ireland's greatest stained-glass artist. During his short life Harry created stained-glass windows for churches, private dwellings and commercial venues throughout Ireland and England, and as far a-field as the USA and Australia. Also an illustrator of books for Harrap and Co. in London, Harry illustrated five books that show his undoubted genius in the area of graphic art. In total 160 windows, and a small number of panels, were created by Harry Clarke. This book is unique in that it contains his entire stained-glass collection, including those windows now in art galleries. This collection has never before been photographed or published in its entirety. This publication will give those who are unfamiliar with the brilliance and originality of Clarke's marvellous stained-glass windows the opportunity to view images of his greatest creations, and perhaps in time to travel to see these wonders for themselves.
