We see colour on a painted surface through the reflection of light; the colour we see in a stained- glass window is from the light refracted through it. The colours of the glass are deadened by reflected light, and when darkness falls a stained-glass window cannot be brought to life." - Stained Glass

Picturesque Ideas On The Flight To Egypt

By Colta Feller Ives

This book is in good condition.The dust cover has some wear, but over all it's in good condition also.the dust cover has some tears and stains on the bottom front cover and spine. There are are no markings inside the book. The pages are just beginning to yellow an tan. "Giovanni Domenico Theopolo's set of twenty-seven etchings entitled Picturesque Ideas of the Flight into Egypt is perhaps the most enchanting of his printmaking accomplishments. Within the history of printed scenes of Christ's life, which began in the fifteenth century, this series is probably unique in format; there is no other depiction known of the Flight into Egypt in such an extended sequence.Beyond this novel aspect, the set reveals the inspiration of Tiepolo's native Venice-her sunny skies and sparkling lagoons, her passion for theatrical spectacles, her artistic heritage of pageant masters. The joyous effects of light, space, and air in these prints reflect the achievements of the eighteenth-century Venetian etchers whose characteristic broken lines captured their city's shimmering atmosphere." - Picturesque Ideas of the Flight into Egypt
