Art Nouveau Stained Glass

    Newer Older

    Art nouveau stained glass window from the Smith Museum of Stained Glass at Navy Pier in Chicago, Illinois. One of a set representing the four seasons; this is Summer. The designer is not known with certainty, but it is believed that Alphonse Mucha designed the four panels.

      We used to have posters like this hanging on the walls in the 70s.

      Your photos of stained glass panels are excellent Terrence.

      Thanks to all for the comments and the faves.

      Steve--I remember those posters done in the style of Alphonse Mucha; I think some were used by Rock groups such as Pink Floyd at that time. I also have a book of posters by David Lance Goines who used the style in advertising for Chez Panisse and other clients in the 1970's.

      Oh yeah, really cool. Love these. Dig up photos of those windows you did in the '70s, if you have them, Zanador; I'd love to see them.

      Yes, this is typically Mucha. I love his work, and especially the Summer paintings.
