dc.description.abstractWe follow La Farge in this paper through his childhood with its eighteenth-century overtones, into the Paris of the mid-century. We see the artist evolve from an interested observer to a diligent and devoted participator, until he is finally and irrevocably following the path of the creative artist. He moves from a mural painter of no little accomplishment to his greatest genius, his glass. It is La Farge's glass that I would like to emphasize in this paper. For it is in his glass that his art reaches its greatest peak of beauty and power. It is as if the whole wealth of his education and experience was meant to culminate in this great wealth of creation and innovation.en_US
