  3. Christopher Webb Biography

    Christopher Rahere Webb (1886-1966) was an English stained glass designer. His unusual second name was derived from that of the founder of St Bartholomew’s Priory in London where his father, Sir Aston Webb carried out some important restoration work. Webb was educated at Rugby School and at the Slade School of Art and then articled to Sir Ninian Comper. His glass work is among the finest of the first half of the 20th century and Sheffield is fortunate to have no less than sixteen examples of his mature work dating from 1935 to 1948 at Sheffield Cathedral. Among these are the unique series on the history of Sheffield in the Chapter House. Webb’s signature is a Saint Christopher with his initials, usually placed in the bottom right hand corner of the window. Characteristics of his style are accuracy of historical detail, his ability to convey basic theological ideas with clarity, the prominence of clear glass and his use of scrolls and foliage.
