Jacques Gruber worked as a glass designer and decorator for the glass firm Daum Frères in Nancy. He later opened his own stained-glass studio. This window is primarily triple layered and features “bubbles” of thick molded opalescent glass; the water-lilies are acid-etched cameo glass. The hanging leaves are made with a rippled surface that lends definition to the plant forms. There are additional layers of colored glass on the reverse side. This window was displayed at the Salon of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1912.
