August Lecture Series—Ornamental Glass Windows at Clayton 1883-1903

August 8, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


For the second of our lecture series, we explore the history of ornamental glass windows through our presentation by PHLF staff.
An “intermezzo” presentation will explore the rebirth of an modest Italianate house into a grand French Chateau, thanks to the resources of Henry Clay Frick and the work of gifted local architects and celebrated artists and craftsmen––in particular those working in stained glass––during the “Aesthetic Movement” of the 1880s and 90s.

This lecture is free and open to the public.

About the presenter: Albert M. Tannler, historical collections director, joined PHLF on January 2, 1991.  He researches and writes architectural history and oversees the James D. Van Trump Library and the Frank B. Fairbanks Rail Transportation Archive. Prior to joining PHLF, Al worked as an archivist and editor in Chicago.  He began researching and writing about architecture in the Department of Special Collections at the University of Chicago Library.
