RODNEY WINFIELD BROOCH WITH ORIGINAL PAINTING

No one's work sold better at Winfield Fine Art in Jewelry than that of Rodney Winfield (Armand Winfield's brother). His painted miniatures were difficult for Armand to keep in stock. Today, almost all of his pieces are in museum collections. His work is charming and illustrative with spiritual nuances. It evokes nostalgic memories of childhood journeys through books of Eastern European folk and fairy tales. Rodney became a well-known producer of stained glass, enamels, and mosaics for churches and synagogues.  He created the N.A.S.A. window in the National Cathedral in Washington. D.C. which contains the Moon Rock.
