Just to prove this blogs motto, "it's all here anyway," here are Ghiberti's North American doors. Cram would have none such copying, by the way, hence he commissioned impressive new bronze doors (depicted above) for St. John the Divine. Some nice details of the south New Testament door here.

Incidentally, Maureen Mullarkey's article on the North American tour of the original Gates of Pardise is a tour de force.
