“WINDOW-GLAZING IS AN INTRODUCTION OF THE MIDDLE AGES, AND WAS UNKNOWN TO THE ANTIQUE...ABOUT THE YEAR 1000, THE PRINCIPAL PLACE OF MANUFACTURE WAS KLOSER TEGERNSEE. IN THE 11TH AND 12TH CENTURIES, PAINTING BEGINS...THE VIGOROUS OUTLINES...ENHANCE THE BRILLIANCY OF THE COLOURS, AND PREVENT THE UNPLEASANT OPTICAL EFFECT PRODUCED BY THE BLENDING OF CONTIGUOUS TINTS.” - FRANZ SALES MEYER, HANDBOOK OF ORNAMENT [1897]
