Christ Calling Peter and Paul

John LaFarge

The Christian discipleship window is by John La Farge, a noted New York glassmaker and painter. It represents Christ calling the apostles at the Sea of Galilee. The lower portraits depict Saint Peter and Saint Paul. 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.
