Bman, Chagall's stained glass can be stunning. We have certainly not seen all of it, but 2 unforgettable examples are in the Cathedral in Reims, Champagne, and my favourite-- "The America Windows" in the Chicago Art Institute. I must have stood in front of the latter for almost half an hour; I was mesmerized by the content and the beautifully back-lit deep blue colour (my wife gave up on me and left, so I had to try to find her later in that massive museum; it was worth the little dispute we had afterwards .) Next time you're in Chicago, I highly recommend seeing this.
Seaq, did you have a chance to walk past Chagall's public mosaic artwork in the Chase Bank Plaza in Chicago?
Chagall's The Four Seasons
VM, I did not know about it until I read your post. We're thinking of a possible Detroit-Chicago-Boston trip next year. Perhaps you'd be able to show it to me. I'll buy lunch.
Love to. It is one of the stops on an informal walking architectural tour of the Loop that I've taken out of town guests on (mostly relatives).
