Harry Clarke

Harry Clarke (Irish, 1889–1931) was known both as a book illustrator and as a prolific stained-glass artist. His illustrations for Hans Christian Andersen’s Fairy Tales, published to critical acclaim in 1916, brought Andersen’s characters to life through a delicate blend of line, pattern, and color. Clarke completed those illustrations around the same time that he commenced work on his first major stained-glass commission for the Honan Chapel in University College, Cork. Clarke’s reputation was established with these two accomplishments, and from that point on, commissions poured his way. Plagued by ill-health for the majority of his working life, Clarke died from tuberculosis at 41. Despite his brief career, Clarke’s level of industriousness and expertise was remarkable. His exceptional graphic work and unparalleled stained-glass designs continue to delight audiences to this day.
