What gorgeous stained glass.
Renaissance stained glass brought an abundance of new ideas and techniques. Silver, gold, brown and olive colors were introduced by the French. A lot more white glass was used in this era, too.
Artisans who sought to design for the wealthy were rewarded handsomely. In both residential and religious images, attention to detail was vital. Images depicting activities such as masonry and glazing often sat happily next to sacred imagery in both churches and homes.
These stained glass panels act like pieces of art, breaking up the horizontal lines of this window.
