John La Farge was one of the first American artists to respond to Japanese art. Inspired by the flowing contours, asymmetrical compositions, and color harmonies of the East, he fused these elements with Western artistic motifs, reminiscent of renaissance painting. La Farge, who invented modern opalescent glass, called this window a “picture work in glass.”
