Narration provided by Tina Oldknow, curator modern glass, The Corning Museum of Glass.
Listen as curator Tina Oldknow describes Landscape Window designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany. This window was commissioned for Rochroane, a Gothic Revival mansion in Irvington, New York, owned by Melchior S. Beltzhoover. It depicts the Hudson River landscape as seen from Rochroane's hilltop location, with hollyhocks, clematis, and trumpet vines executed in Louis Tiffany's signature art nouveau style. The window's special glasses, in custom colors and patterns, were made at the direction of Tiffany, a painter who often worked with watercolors. Stained glass was an essential component of American sacred and secular architecture at the start of the 20th century. The industry was fueled both by the economic boom of the 1870s and by the building of many churches at that time. Tiffany Studios produced hundreds of stained glass windows. Although the majority of them portrayed religious themes, since churches were Tiffany's most regular clients, the landscape windows best illustrate Tiffany's range as a stained glass designer.
