Posted November 21, 2018 04:24:18 The windows at a Toronto public library have a fascinating story to share with the world, thanks to an amazing stained glass seal from the late 19th century.
The story behind the window seals dates back to 1786, when a group of artists in London decided to give their works of art a new look by creating windows in their own homes.
They were given the name windows and were designed by Sir George Boulton, who had purchased an antique painting in the East End and made a glass model of it.
Boulson’s windows were then used in London as a temporary exhibition.
The windows in Toronto are made of glass that is treated with a resin, which is then removed and used in the creation of the windows, which are stained glass.
The new window seals will be available at the Toronto Public Library in October.
