Architect George Bryant will present a lecture entitled, “The Most Glorious Stained Glass: Henry Holiday and the Rhineland Memorial Church of the Holy Trinity”

William Rhinelander Stewart described the two transept windows designed by Henry Holiday for Church of the Holy Trinity as “The most glorious stained glass he had seen ancient or modern.” Stewart commissioned Holiday to design all seventeen windows in the church making Holy Trinity one of the few remaining churches in the world with a complete set of Holiday windows. The lecture will explain how this happened by tracing Holiday’s career, his artistic development and his cultivation of small but loyal set of influential patrons in New York City.

Advance registration is suggested.
