N.B. This group is for stained glass, decorative schemes and other works by Daniel Cottier & Company. We love the Cottier Theatre, but music and theatre shots from it should go in another group.

Group Description

Daniel Cottier (1838-1891) was a Scottish stained glass colourist who became a leading light in the Aesthetic movement and had showrooms in London, Sydney and New York City.

He is particularly well known for using rich colours and floral motifs.


"Born in Anderston Glasgow in January 1837 to a Manx father and Highland Scots mother, Margaret M'lean - 'with his big head, his curly red hair, his shrewd and humorous eyes, his strong Scots accent, his unaffected naturalness and bonhomie-was far more like an ideal coasting skipper than an artist'.
Madox Brown is quoted as saying 'Cottier, as a colourist has a range of performance beyond that of any other modern artist. Here line and colouring are suggestive of paradise itself'."

"In 1867 he moved to London and in 1873 opened his New York house, he also opened a branch in Australia - he is considered an important influence on Louis Comfort Tiffany and also credited with introducing the Aesthetic movement to America and Australia.
