Smith Museum :Tiffany Gallery [ Field of Lilies - Tiffany Studio ]

Field of Lilies..
Designed, Fabricated by Tiffany Studio..
Location: Tiffany Gallery at the
the Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows, Navy Pier.

Although Tiffany initially designed figure windows on Biblical themes, the floral and landscape subjects soon vied with it in popularity. He then joined the two to create a window that was neither solely landscape nor figurative.These designs often featured figures set in lush landscapes, a departure from the traditional Gothic setting from Biblical scenes.
Field of Lilies.. is a superb example of neither-floral-landscape-nor-figurative type of window.

Of all of Tiffany's artistic endeavours, stained glass brought him the greatest recognition.
