Stained Glass Panel with the Nativity


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 306

This panel, and its companion (acc. no. 13.64.3), were once part of a window depicting the ancestry of Christ in the form of a Tree of Jesse. The painter of these windows adopted an angular style of breaking folds of drapery and subtle juxtapositions of often brilliant color, initiating a new style of glass painting in the middle Rhine.
