23rd Psalm (14)

Tiffany Glass Company

(image unavailable)

The Twenty-third Psalm window illustrates the text of this beautiful song. In the upper portion, angels bear torches and lilies. this window was also executed by Frederick Wilson of the Tiffany Glass Company. The long, flowing lines in the design of these two windows reflect the influence of the Art Nouveau style, of which Tiffany was very much a proponent.

Note that in the American-manufactured windows in this church, the faces and portraits are painted in oils onto the transparent glass. The English-manufactured windows in this church use an entirely different technique, where all aspects of the illustration are etched directly onto the colored glass and stained prior to assembly. The painted portraits have weathered over time, and are now protected from weather elements with a outer layer of plexiglass.
