Christian Waller’s exemplary skills and achievements as an Australian stained-glass artist are brought to light in this superb book. A leading proponent of Modernism in Australian art and the sole woman professional stained-glass artist in Australia until the 1970s, she was greatly admired for her mastery of technique, brilliant design, originality and sumptuous use of colour. Her individual work was vast in extent and always strongly in demand, though in a male-dominated art world she has been since her death overshadowed by her husband, Napier Waller.

Christian was inspired by the Arts and Crafts Movement, Symbolism, the Celtic Revival and by Theosophy and Hermetic lore. She was intensely spiritual and her unique synthesis of Christianity and Theosophy permeated her art works, which parallel those of Piet Mondrian and Hilma af Klint.
