Description:

Union Church, a quaint old chapel on Route 448 in Pocantico Hills has nine Chagall stained-glass windows and one by Chagall's esteemed peer, Henri Matisse. Nelson Rockefeller commissioned the Matisse rose window above the chancel to honor his mother, Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, one of the founders of the Museum of Modern Art. The design for the rose window was completed just two days before Matisse died. David and Peggy Rockefeller commissioned the Chagall windows, the only cycle of Chagall church windows in America.
