Thornbridge Hall window ~ Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris

"... In 1871 Sleigh sold the Hall and 185 acres (about 77 hectares) of land to Frederick Craven who commissioned the architect J B Mitchell-Withers to rebuild the Hall in the Jacobean style, with stained-glass windows by William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones." - Parks and Garden UK

Pygmalion and the Image - The Soul Attains by Edward Burne-Jones was part of the Frederick Craven Collection. Another work in his collection was Night. (I believe now part of the Lloyd Webber Collection.)
