People‘s Palace, Glasgow If you thought stained-glass was all angelic seraphims gliding by on putts of nimbulus, then you'd be hall-right. But, as the People's Palace new exhibition shows, the medium also had more than a passing penchant forthe unyielding face of Victorian didacticism. Between 1870 and 1930, Glasgow was a major producer of stained~glass, feeding a voracious market both at home and on the confinenf

From this vast reservoir of work, the Palace has located, saved and restored 200 prime examples of the craft. Unfortunately, due to a shortage of space, only a tenth of this can be exhibited at any one time, something the museum would do well to rectify.

The exhibits are seen in a suitably reverential setting, located in an alt-black gallery and illuminated from behind. Of the twenty-two pieces on display, the work of Stephen Adams stands out: ‘The Engineers' highlights the Victorian work-ethic in its full grimy glory while his ten-loot high frieze ‘The Missionary‘ shows supplicant negroes bowing atthe feet of a bible-bashing whitey, religious imperialism coming into play alongside the cultural variety.

An excellent display of rarely acknowledged talents. It's just a pity there couldn't be more of it. (Allan Brown)
