Stained Glass of the Church of All Saints, York: Picture 3(d) THE JOYS OF THE VIRGIN WINDOW
(apologies for the poor quality, it will be redone, but too good to leave out).
This is a mid-14th century east window of the north aisle Lady Chapel (~1340). It was restored in the 1840s by Wailes of Newcastle. The iconography is that of the 'Joys of the Virgin' i.e. a summary of the major events in the Virgin Mary's life. The main panels at the bottom of the window are from left to right: the Annunciation, the Nativity, and Our Lord's Resurrection. The panels above portray the Adoration of the Magi, The Crucifixion and our Lady's Coronation as Queen of Heaven. The panels are set beneath elaborate canopies on a ground of trailing foliage, reminiscent of the glass produced by Robert Ketalbarn in the 1330s for the nave of York Minster.
