Arthur Keightley Nicholson (1871-1937) was the middle of three very talented brothers. The eldest was the architect Charles (1867-1949), the youngest Sydney (1875-1947) the founder of the Royal School of Church Music. Arthur Nicholson was largely self-taught in the art and craft of stained glass, and established his own studio in St John’s Wood in 1907. The studio was very successful, producing more than 700 windows and continued after his death under his former chief designer G. E. R. Smith.
