Sainte Chapelle Rose Window
Acrylic Gouache and Gold Leaf on Paper
Framed: 92 x 92cm
Signed by the Artist
Certificate of Authenticity

The rose window at the west of the upper chapel of Sainte Chapelle was made in the late 15th century. It is a very fine example of the flamboyant Gothic style, named for the flamelike curling designs. It is nine meters in diameter, and is composed of eighty-nine separate panels representing scenes of the Apocalypse. It is possibly the most detailed visual telling of the Book of Revelations ever known. The 15th-century glass artists used a new technique, called silver stain, which allowed them to paint on the glass with enamel paints, and to use fire to fuse the paint onto the glass. This allowed them to modify the colour, and create shading and other fine details.
