SIA Inspiration: Spring Window

For this week’s SIA, Jess picks this stunning stained glass window, appropriately titled, “Spring”, at the Philadelphia Museum of Art:

Designed by John La Farge and painted by Juliette Hanson in 1901-1902, this contains the largest single sheet of glass ever used in a stained-glass window, which is the woman’s face and torso. La Farge considered it his masterpiece, and rightly so – it’s incredibly intricate and rich, isn’t it? So put together your best spring-like outfit inspired by this and send it to Jess (animatedcardigan@gmail.com) by next Monday, March 23rd. Have fun!

    Wow, this is really cool. It sort of reminds me of Michelangelo’s The Creation Of Adam painting. She sort of has that “S” curve position going for her there and the way her body is sort of limp like Adam’s makes for a great comparison. I love stained glass window art. I bet this is a true jewel to see in person!

  2. My goodness, that is beautiful!! Absolutely gorgeous.
