Subject/Title of Window: The Robson Window

Brief Description of Subject: The Robson Window over the altar is a memorial to the Rev. George A. Robson, 16th rector of St. Paul's, and was installed when the church was built. It is called the Tiffany Window, after the style of famed New York glass artist Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933), who adapted the Art Nouveau style of the turn of the 20th century to his stained glass work. The image is said to be the deathbed vision experienced by Mr. Robson. The dominant figure is Christ, with arms outstretched, welcoming all true believers into the Kingdom of Heaven. The window also expresses, through its symbols of the rayed cross, Alpha and Omega, and the Easter season's blooming flowers, the resurrection promise inherent in all Christian belief.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.
