The exhibition features more than twenty pieces of stained glass from the fifteenth to the twentieth centuries and is the third exhibition devoted to stained glass which has been organized by the gallery since 2004.

Among the medieval pieces are a late fifteenth-century (possibly Parisian) roundel of St. John on the island of Patmos and two English half-length angels [Figs 11 and 12].

Admission is free and the Gallery is open every day, except Monday, from 11 am to 7 pm.
