This is the Southgate Window in St. Anne's church. This information was found on their website about the window: The first window on the left as you enter the nave of the church, depicting Christ quieting the wind and waves, was given as a memorial to William S. Southgate, rector from 1869 to 1899, by his children. The window, by the New York firm of Heinigke and Bowen, was unveiled on All Saints’ Day, November 1, 1903 – a date chosen because The Reverend and Mrs. Southgate were married on All Saints’ Day in 1858. John LaFarge and Louis Comfort Tiffany, both of whom held patents for types of opalescent glass, also later known as Tiffany glass, are the most famous turn-of-the- 20th-century American makers of stained glass, but Otto Heinigke was at the time, equally famous. Heinigke’s style of stained glass window making is unique as he was one of the first to combine the traditional European stained glass technique of painted pot metal glass with that of the contemporary opalescent glass. Heinigke’s colleague, Owen Bowen, worked with both LaFarge and Tiffany prior to the founding of Heinigke and Bowen in 1890. Bowen died in 1902, but the firm retained his name until Heinigke’s death in 1915, when it became Heinigke and Smith. Heinigke’s art glass windows filled the homes of the important members of New York Society: Whitney, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Gould, Morgan, Guggenheim, Marshall Field, and Carnegie all had windows designed by Otto Heinigke. Most of them did not have windows by Tiffany. Heinigke also designed windows for the New York Stock Exchange, the New York Yacht Club, the Library of Congress, and Carnegie Hall. There are significant Heinigke windows in the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York, in St Johns Lafayette Square in Washington, and in numerous churches, universities and public spaces in the East and Midwest.
