Artist Name: Harry Wright Goodhue

City: Bloomfield Hills

Window Shape: 6 (gothic arched, over 2 vertical sections)

Date of Window: 1927

Subject/Title of Window: Jesus and Craftsmen

Brief Description of Subject: In the chapel of St. Dunstan (10th C. Archbishop of Canterbury and patron saint of goldsmith/artists and craftsmen), craftsmen from the Bible and craftsmen who actually worked on Christ Church Cranbrook are honored. This reflects the great influence of the Arts and Crafts Movement (William Morris) on the church. For this window, the central figure of Christ holding three nails and the hammer of his crucifixion is not identified by name. The others are as follows: at the left, St. Joseph, the carpenter (with saw); St. Crispin, shoe maker; at the right, Noah the shipwright; and Tubal Cain, metal worker. Below the figure of Jesus is a portrait of King David, the psalmist, with his harp.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact stainedglass@museum.msu.edu
