The history of European stained glass in American museums is by its nature a history of fragments, as these works are completely removed from their architectural context. Determining their date and nationality is further complicated by the popularity that stained glass enjoyed in the post-Renaissance period as well as the disastrous impact of revolution and on the windows of European homes and churches.

The painted panels with classical figures [42.33.1-3] were never intended to represent medieval or Renaissance glass, as were those on the previous page; the figural style suggests an origin in the 1800s.
