SXXViii; d2; d3, Jareth, Stained-Glass, Canterbury Cathedral, Kent, UK, England, Window Panels from SXXViii
Six magnificent stained-glass windows from England's legendary Canterbury Cathedral will winter this year at the Cloisters—the first time these masterpieces of Romanesque art have left home since they were created between 1178 and 1180. Measuring up to 12 feet in height, the windows feature the biblical figures, including Abraham, who were considered the ancestors of Christ, part of a series that originally numbered 86 works in all.
