Previous issues of Vidimus have traced Jonathan and Ruth Cooke’s conservation of important fifteenth-century painted and stained glass at the parish church of St Michael and All Angels at Thornhill in West Yorkshire
As part of this project Jonathan Cooke recently created a replica cartoon of one of the original panels showing St Michael weighing souls, and the entry of the Blessed into the Heavenly City.
He has now produced a painted glass panel of this cartoon which has been loaned to the church as part of an ongoing programme designed to promote discussion about the best way to conserve the original glass [Fig. 12].
The panel will subsequently feature at an exhibition of Jonathan’s work at Lotherton Hall, near Leeds, later this year.
