Good Shepherd and Landscape, 1909
The New-York Historical Society
In 2004, The Neustadt and the New-York Historical Society reunited the five panels of the Good Shepherd and Landscape window. They are displayed together at the New-York Historical Society for the first time since they were removed from the chapel at the Stony Wold Sanatorium in Lake Kushaqua, New York.
Stony Wold was established in 1901 by Mrs. James Newcomb to create a place where self-supporting young women and their children suffering from early tuberculosis (a.k.a. consumption) might regain their health. Located on 1,200 scenic acres of land in Upstate New York, the sanatorium offered patients the “wilderness cure” – essentially, resting and sleeping outdoors in the unpolluted air of the Adirondack Mountains.
The Good Shepherd, depicting Jesus tending his flock, was a popular subject for memorial windows at the Tiffany Studios. By 1910, the firm had created some 73 variations of this theme. This particular window is attributed to Frederick Wilson (1858-1932), one of Tiffany Studios’ foremost designers.
Stony Wold’s Good Shepherd window contains the most extensive landscape design of all the known versions produced by the Tiffany Studios. The long, horizontal composition complimented the architecture of the chapel and the countryside near Lake Kushaqua may have served as inspiration for the window’s setting. The window was donated to Stony Wold by Mrs. Walter Geer in memory of her sister, Miss Martha Potter.
The three panels pictured here, depicting Jesus and his flock, are part of the Neustadt Collection of Tiffany Glass.
