Rhind, Ethel (fl. early 20th c.)

Irish artist. Born in Bengal, India; date of death unknown; educated at Londonderry High School; the School of Art, Belfast; and the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art; member of the Guild of Irish Artworkers.

Ethel Rhind was born in Bengal, India, but was educated and worked in Ireland. After she attended Londonderry High School and the School of Art, Belfast, Rhind was awarded a scholarship to study mosaic at the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art in 1902. Six years later, her window in the Old Court Chapel in Strangford, County Down, won first prize at the Royal Dublin Society. Rhind's specialty was creating mosaics from glass set into the plaster of a wall, a technique known as "opus sectile." She used this method in designing the stations of the cross at St. Edna's Church in Spiddal, County Galway. Rhind worked at Sarah Purser's Dublin workshop, An Túr Gloine (Tower of Glass), and also designed pieces for Grangegorman Church in Dublin and Magheralin Church in County Down. She was a member of the Guild of Irish Artworkers and exhibited her work at the Arts and Crafts Society of Ireland in 1910, 1917, and 1921.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
