The ‘Mayersche Kunstanstalt’ in Munich, founded in 1847, successfully sought commissions from Great Britain and overseas. Prior to 1914, in order to satisfy the demands of British clients the company employed up to 10 British glass painters, enabling it to effectively compete with the other European studios. The workshop’s style was especially influenced by the British glass painter W. F. Dixon, who had been hired by Mayer. Guidelines were the transparent-white architectures of the Late Gothic with figures whose gentle features echoed the work of the Nazarenes.
