Caroline Townshend Stained Glass




Longterm readers of this blog will recognise the two pencil sketches above that hang in our flat here in Portsmouth. They are the work of Caroline Townshend, a stained-glass artist. By all accounts an interesting character who set up home after the First World War with her lover and life-partner Joan Howson. In fact, we have often wondered if the female nude is, in fact, Joan. So, casting around for something to do this afternoon R and I drove over to Rustington, a small adjunct to Littlehampton in West Sussex and visited the church there where we knew there was some stained glass by Townshend.
