I have recently created a page devoted to stained-glass panels from the 13th through the 16th century in the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri. Although this blog is primarily about glass in Kansas City’s religious institutions, each of the Nelson’s beautiful windows was once located in a religious institution before they “migrated” to this wonderful museum in the “Heart of America.” If you click in this link Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art Kansas City, Missouri it will take you to the new page where you will find images of each of the windows in the Nelson’s collection, along with what I hope you will find to be interesting information about each window’s content and provenance. So come with me into the Nelson, and enjoy the artistry and inspiration of works created in glass that have survived over 500 years. I think they are amazing, and I hope you will be as moved by them as I have been.
