Nuttgens, Joseph E
Joseph Edward (Eddie) Nuttgens (1892 – 1982) was born in Aachen, the son of a German father and English mother who moved to London in 1895. He developed a talent for drawing from a young age. However, being born in Germany, he was interned during the First World War and this interfered with his training and his ambition to become a portrait artist. His entry into the world of stained glass happened by chance, his drawings being seen by Arthur Orr, a stained glass artist living in Harrow, to whom he became assistant. His early influence was Burne-Jones, Christopher Whall and, at the London Central School of Art, Karl Parsons; a later influence being Eric Gill who was his neighbour.
