The Pilgrim

Louis Comfort Tiffany

The last window on the south wall shows a Christian pilgrim carrying his staff and scrip. It was commissioned by the parish in honor of the first Sunday school teacher at Incarnation, George N. Hale, and was designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany. 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.
