31st August 1997 to 30th October 1998

Vitromusée Romont/Deutsches Glasmalerei-Museum, Switzerland/Germany


"Brian Clarke and Linda McCartney are both names to conjure with. Between the late 60s and her untimely death in April, McCartney established a solid reputation as a world-class photographer with an enormous number of exhibitions to her credit, including a solo show at the Victoria and Albert Museum, and six books of photographs of which 'Sixties: Portrait of an Era' and 'Roadworks' are probably the best known. For his part Clarke has revolutionised the way stained glass is now perceived, turning a craft with a reputation for ecclesiastical stuffiness and outmoded iconography into an architectural art vibrantly in tune with the times." – 'Photographs on Glass: Linda McCartney's Last Work with Brian Clarke', Crafts magazine, 1998.

Brian Clarke and Linda McCartney: Collaborations was a travelling exhibition of the Collaborations panels, staged at the Musée suisse du vitrail et des arts du verre from 31 August 1997–26 April 1998, and at the Deutsches Glasmalerei-Museum from 16 May–30 October 1998; subject of the 1997 book Brian Clarke–Linda McCartney: Collaborations, with essays by art historian Martin Harrison and Vitromusée Romont director Stefan Trumpler.
