And to beautify his house": Lyon, Cottier & Co.'s ecclesiastical window glass and decoration during the 1870s', Andrew Montana
Sydney stained glass artists Lyon Cottier & Co. carried out many commissions in public, private and religious buildings in their 50 years of activity from 1873 to 1924. Prominent architects chose their work for Sydney’s GPO, Government House and Parliament House. Religious services were an important and frequent part of 19th-century spiritual and social life. Dr Andrew Montana examines Lyon Cottier's decoration in city and country churches and the Great Synagogue.
