The Great East Window: Brian Clarke

For painter and architectural artist Brian Clarke, seeing the Great East Window of York Minster as a child was a profoundly formative experience. He weaves his personal experience with evocative description of its creation, concentration of colours and cinematic mode of storytelling, putting us in the shoes of its Medieval viewer "A bridge for us to cross from mundanity to the sublime", Clarke guides our own appreciation of the work and its enduring power.
