This event will focus on a significant collection of leaded glass windows that chronicle the dramatic rise of this art form and its innovations in the 19th century, coupled with the increased use of the windows as memorials to loved ones. Louis Comfort Tiffany is represented with nine windows installed beside the work of important Chicago glass makers including Louis Millet and Giannini & Hilgart, and two rare windows by Edward Burne-Jones. Donors include prominent Chicagoans Marshall Field, Mrs. George Pullman, and the family of Silas Cobb.
