New London – The Lyman Allyn Art Museum is delighted to announce the acquisition of a magnificent stained-glass window created by the renowned Tiffany Studios in New York. In 1924, Come Unto Me was installed above the pulpit in the All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church of New London, CT and was dedicated to the memory of Anna Chaplin Rumrill, a member of that congregation. This exquisite work of art depicts a beatific Jesus standing with outstretched arms in the foreground of a lustrous landscape with mountains, a lake, and cypress trees. The large window (72” tall x 76” wide) is signed by Louis Comfort Tiffany and composed entirely of Favrile glass.
On October 9th, 2014, the Board of the All Souls Congregation agreed to sell the Tiffany window to the Lyman Allyn Art Museum. By accepting the Museum’s offer, the Congregation ensures that the prized window remains on public view in New London.
