Quantcast
Moguls and Museums: A History of Collecting Stained Glass in America

For the Sundays at the Met program An Old World Art Form for the New World: Issues in the History of Conservation, Collecting, and American Designs for Stained-Glass Windows, a group of experts, conservators and curators explore the history of stained glass, from its creation to its conservation, its design to its collection.

Timothy B. Husband discusses the American collection of stained glass through the individuals and institutions involved in these endeavors. Husband begins by describing the rise of stained glass in gothic Europe, soon followed by the rise of its collection and the decontextualization that resulted as windows were moved from cathedrals to private country homes in bits and pieces. He follows this history through the use of antique stained windows as decorative elements to the acknowledgement of stained glass as works of art, and the growth of museum collections.

Timothy B. Husband, curator, Department of Medieval Art and The Cloisters Museum and Gardens, The Metropolitan Museum of Art; introduced by Lisa Pilosi, conservator, Sherman Fairchild Center for Objects Conservation, The Metropolitan Museum of Art
