Scholarly Commentary


This is one of the original drawings, both now lost, of “the two censing angels designed in 1861 for [stained glass] tracery circles at Selsey, and later repeated at Lyndhurst and at St. James's, Brighouse” (Sewter, 67). See the working cartoon copy, as well as the stained glass at Selsey. Its counterpart, Censing Angel [1] and its working cartoon are also worth noting.
