This book offers detailed discussions of Kempe's work, with a strong focus on particular windows, themes and relationships. There are chapters on Kempe's work in cathedrals; in some key churches in Britain and in particular locations such as Oxford and Cambridge. Other chapters examine the influences that led to his characteristic style as exemplified in major subjects such as the Annunciation and Incarnation, the Passion of Christ and the lives of the saints. Comparisons and contrasts between Kempe glass and that of other firms (Morris and Co., Burlison and Grylls, Christopher Whall etc.) lead to a concluding evaluation of his legacy and standing today.
