Historic Summit Atelier – Stained Glass Windows Etched & Designed by J.G Vysekal.
One of the main focal points of the historic studio home is the large stain glass window anchoring the main stairwell wall. This amazing window of the building allows rays of the evening sun to cast and settle their shadows throughout the home.
The artist J.G Vysekal visited the summit mansion back in 1907. It is here where he attended the art school and created the basement billiard room paintings, speak easy bar, stain glass windows and other architectural details. Such care was given to the art in the home, details like etched patterns created in the stained glass windows, and wood details and solid oak doors that frame the interior. Yes, a magnificent window presenting such a beautiful display of the Mississippi river valley,
