Past Posts No 20 October 2018: Windows

Our last Past Posts featured houses. Today it is the turn of windows. And who doesn't love windows in all their shapes and sizes. As my first post below emphasises: windows allow us to look into the soul of a house.

Windows often change the way we see the world.

And there is no doubt that some windows, especially stained glass windows such as made by Louis Comfort Tiffany, are almost unequaled as works of art.

Appreciating the Soul of Houses: Windows
Windows in houses can tell much about the occupants. We enjoy looking at paintings of windows by Andrew Wyeth, Henri Matisse, Marc Chagall, Adolph von Menzel. The hero image is of the front windows in one of my family homes in Bendigo.
The Perception of the World Through Windows
Windows are used by artists to help emphasise the narrative structure of the image. In this post we see paintings by Vermeer, Edward Hopper, Rene Magritte, Picasso, Juan Gris. Image: Windows on a Time: Two by Anne Newman
Art Nouveau Windows
The treat today is to enjoy images of some of the windows designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany. The Image is an example of a Tiffany window from the Mark Twain House, Hartford, Connecticut. (Credit: Traditional Fine Arts Organisation)
