Bonneville Ward: Stained Glass & Chapel Details

This window was made by D'Ascenzo Studios of Philadelphia. It was donated by Junius and Margaret Jackson.



The window is based on Heinrich Hoffman's Christ in Gethsemane.




I also liked some of the molding details in the chapel:


And this was hanging in the lobby. You never know what you'll find in some of these churches.

  1. Wow! Thank you for the detailed photos of the window. I can even see the disciples sleeping in the background. Any idea who did the calligraphy art? The drawings are similar in color and style to Minerva Teichert.

  2. Unfortunately, I don't have any more information on the window, besides the studio that made it and the painting it's based on. I definitely like the style of the window, though; and I can see how it would look similar to a Teichert painting! No source I've found has indicated her involvement at all, though.

  3. I see there is a signature on the art in the lobby, but I can't read it. It looks like it says Elaine or Blaine, not Minerva. But the drawings resemble Teichert's figures and color schemes.

    1. Sorry--I didn't realize you were talking about the art in the lobby, not the window. It's signed "Blaine McCune, '50".
