Stained Glass Beauty

Stained Glass Beauty
"The Reader", circa 1897
By the Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company
Based on "La Liseuse", painted by Jules Joseph Lefebvre (1836-1911)
Exhibited at the 1889 Salon in Paris

This beautiful work of stained glass art is one of the many visually stunning pieces that was on display in the Tiffany exhibit at Winterthur near Wilmington, Delaware this past summer.The lamps were beautiful, but I was completely enthralled by this gorgeous rendering of the Lefebvre painting in stained glass. Tiffany Glass deserved its reputation the world over as the premier maker of stained glass lamps and other works of art.

As the cliche goes, the photo doesn't quite do it justice, but I hope I captured it well enough for you to see why I love this work of art so much.

Thank you all so much for your kind words, dear friends! I am glad you enjoy this stained glass masterpiece as much as I do! :-))
