Harry Clarke (1889 – 1931) is another of my favorite artists. His work has been compared with that of Aubrey Beardsley, Edmund Dulac and Kay Nielsen. Although known primarily for his book illustrations, he also studied stained glass at The Dublin Art School. His “The Consecration of St. Mel, Bishop of Longford, by St. Patrick”, won the 1910 Board of Education National Competition while he was still a student there. His stained glass designs are featured in the windows of the Honan Chapel, at University College Cork, among other locations in Ireland. His book illustrations include the works of E.A. Poe, J.W. Goethe, A.C. Swinburne, Charles Perrault, H.C. Andersen, and Geofrey Warren.
