Conference Success for MA Graduate

Posted on 31 October 2014

On 17 October several members of the Stained Glass Research School contributed to an exciting seminar, The Historical Value of Stained Glass and its Conservation Problems, based at La Mercè Cultural Centre, Girona (Catalonia), organised by recent MA graduate Anna Santoloria Tura.

‌The seminar, co-hosted by the Fundació Abertis, Universitat de Girona, EMA Girona, the Corpus Vitrearum Medii Aevi Catalunya, Anna Santoloria Tura‌Taller de Conservació de Vitralls Can Pinyonaire and the University of York, was attended by delegates from all over Europe.

Anna's own presentation was based on her dissertation research,  a re-examination of the famous Girona glaziers' tables, a unique survival of a medieval glazing 'cartoon' and working table, for which related medieval glazing has survived. Anna's dissertation has recently been published in parallel English and Catalan translation, and the Museum of Art has redisplayed the tables in the light of her research, undertaken as part of the MA in Stained Glass Conservation and Heritage Management.
