I like stained glass, i like simple geometric color, but figurative glass has more to say. Most, not all, is found in churches. Some churches are only open for services, and if one goes to his regular community he has closed the window of opportunity to see some.
I am more familiar with local Catholic glass. Wednesday night, a speaker suggested to see the glass at Lakewood United Methodist. In a room that was not the sanctuary, a multi lancet window had a large Nativity of Jesus window in the South German painterly style. I believe, that was the window he wanted to be seen. It was a warm friendly window, but at that time of day anyway, it did not receive enough sunlight. In several Protestant churches there is a huge multi-panel, multi-scene window. This church had two such in the sanctuary. In roughly would be a west transept spot there was a window with ten main panels with fifteen scenes plus tracery windows. The choir loft had another such window. The back of this window is seen outside from Detroit Avenue. One panel has Cleveland's Terminal Tower, formerly the second tallest building in the United States.
La Farge's father-in-law was Oliver Hazard Perry. John Jr. became a Jesuit priest. A large La Farge is on Cleveland's Public Square in the Old Stone (Presbyterian) Church.
