Design for a three-part window in the style of Mackintosh

Dard Hunter American

Not on view

William Joseph "Dard" Hunter first fell in love with the style of the Arts & Crafts Movement when he saw the interior of the New Glenwood Hotel (now The Mission Inn) in California in 1903. Not a year later he applied for a job at the Roycroft Furniture Shop where he would become an important designer and manufacturer of graphic art, pottery, jewelry, furniture and stained glass lamps and windows. Coming from a graphic arts background, in the beginning Hunter seems to have merely supplied the designs for stained glass projects, but Elbert Hubbard, head of the Roycroft Shop, soon sent him to New York for a two-month course in stained glass production and by 1906 Hunter was head of all stained glass production within the firm. He had a great interest in the Wiener Werkstatte, and influences of both the Viennese and Glasgow School of Charles Rennie Mackintosh can be clearly distinguished in his designs.
