Nauta, Max

Marten Ykes (Max) Nauta (1896-1957) was a Dutch painter and glazier. His Dutch studies were supplemented by a study trip to the Czech Republic, where he met leading artists such as Alphons Mucha, Max Svabinsky, who would fire an appreciation of Bohemian glass.

Nauta’s professional life would include many prestigious commissions, such as a portrait of Winston Churchill in 1955. In glass he shows a great sense of symbolism and allegory as well as an appreciation of the medieval masters in the use of a rich and vibrant colour palette.

Other fine examples of his work in England can be found at the Church of St Andrew, Roxbourne, Harrow.
