Window of the Week: Pia De' Tolomei

We created this 3' x 5' stained glass window in 1991, inspired by an 1868 painting by Dante Gabriel Rossetti entitled Pia De' Tolomei. The image, of a woman imprisoned by her husband, was modeled by Jane Morris - who was having an affair with the artist at the time. This may have been Rossetti's statement on the situation! An exuberantly colored window, this piece features a wealth of detail and multiple plated layers of glass. We created this window for our home and it remains in our private collection.
