Fun Fact

This vibrant and richly colored stained glass window incorporates a technique that layered colors, producing shadows and creating a multidimensional quality. Most noticeable in the lush landscape depicted in the central pane, this technique was used to great effect by Louis Comfort Tiffany and his workshop, thereby popularizing and establishing the technique as a hallmark of the artist's style.

Description

This window was originally installed in a house located on the present site of the First Church of Christ Scientist on Overlook Road in Cleveland.
