Irish stained glass artist and illustrator Harry Clarke spent most of his short life in Dublin, and created magnificent, gothic-inspired, modern stained glass windows for Catholic and Protestant churches and private homes in Ireland, England, and the United States. His iconic illustrations for Edgar Alan Poe's Tales of Mystery and Imagination (1919), Goethe's Faust (1925), and other books brought him fame on both sides of the Atlantic. As a key member of the Irish Arts & Crafts Movement -- the visual counterpart to the Irish Literary Revival -- his work helped shape the cultural landscape of newly independent Ireland. 

My work on Harry Clarke includes "Harry Clarke's Looking Glass" on the Public Domain Review; "Harry Clarke's Modernist Gaze" in Eire-Ireland 47:3-4 (Fall/Winter 2012), "Harry Clarke's Saints and Sinners: Making Ireland Modern" in The Arts and Crafts Movement: Making It Irish edited by Vera Kreilkamp, the catalogue for the spring 2016 McMullen Museum exhibition of the same name. 

I have a catalogue of photographs of Clarke's glass  you can browse here. Clarke's work is in the public domain; please contact me for permission to reproduce or use my photographs.
