John La Farge (American, 1835–1910)
Peacocks and Peonies II (detail), 1882
In his stained glass windows, John La Farge layered colored glass as a painter would build glazes of colors to achieve the right shade. Each peony blossom in Peacocks and Peonies II, shown on this bookmark, is a single piece of glass molded to catch the light differently throughout the day.
