Issued in conjunction with a 2015 exhibition that "brings new light to the stained glass and paintings of one of America's finest and most complex artists, John La Farge (1835-1910). Occasioned by the magnificent gift and completion of the restoration of three large opalescent leaded glass windows to the McMullen Museum of Art, this exhibition examines La Farge's lifelong efforts to visualize the sacred in myriad forms. Most outstandingly shown in his stained glass and ecclesiastical paintings, the exhibition will demonstrate how this quest is manifest equally in the artist's representations of nature and still life and in his stunningly imaginative book illustrations."
