Peacocks and Peonies

La Farge, John, Peacocks and Peonies I, 1882, stained glass window, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Henry A. La Farge, 1936.12.1

Stained glass or art glass is rather difficult to exhibit in museums. It is usually associated with churches and some other buildings. The Smithsonian American Art Museum has a few good examples, including those built into the building that used to house the Patent Office. We see some amazing things as we visit our nation's capital city.
