Detailed Description

From the original window at the west end of the Gail Kern Paster Reading Room, the Seven Ages of Man window is by the Philadelphia stained-glass studio of Nicola d'Ascenzo.

At Henry Folger's request, D'Ascenzo modeled the stone tracery of the window after the apse window of Stratford's Holy Trinity Church. The stained glass within the stonework depicts the Seven Ages of Man that Jaques describes in As You Like It:

"All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages."

Infant, Schoolboy, Lover, Soldier, Justice, Pantaloon, and Old Man.

Museum Glass Art is made in the USA, utilizing a patent-pending dye sublimation process that creates a uniquely formatted light-scattering coating on ultra-clear polished edge float glass. This process crafts a translucent and almost three-dimensional effect, and the resulting panel is highly resistant to fading in all conditions, including direct sunlight. Use mild soap and water to wipe clean.
Size: 8 x 10 inches.
