In fifteenth-century Cologne, glass painting began to be increasingly influenced by developments in panel painting. The inclusion of a landscape exemplifies this new attitude in stained-glass design, in which figures are now placed in natural settings instead of against patterned backdrops. The source for these landscapes was not nature itself but the work of printmakers.
