Harry Clarke

Clarke was born in Dublin in 1889 and, as an illustrator, has been pretty much overshadowed by Beardsley. Clarke's work is lusher, more intricate, sometimes more twisted and, in a way much more purely decadent than Beardsley. Illustrating paid the bills but Clarke's medium of choice was stained glass and his designs - some of which can be found through the links below - are some of the most sumptuous stained glass ever devised.

Grandma's Graphics well worth checking out the rest of Grandma's site too.

Biography on a site which is also worth checking out in its entirety.
