Three years ago on this blog, I wrote about Henry Holiday’s depiction of the Transfiguration in the stained glass window located at Trinity Church in the City of Boston. At the time I was particularly interested in the position of the hands in his window though my research revealed to me that he was especially noted for his execution of drapery.
With a new lens and new perspective I’ve been revisiting the window, and I begin to understand what I read about his work with cloth in glass.
These images are from the top of the window. What’s amazing to me is that much of this detail you cannot see with the naked eye.
And yet the whole of what you see from the ground is quite stunning.
