God the Father – Become! is the title of a stained glass window, designed by Stanisław Wyspiański, in St. Francis's Church in Kraków. The medieval Franciscan church was consumed by the great fire of 1850 and then rebuilt in Neo-Gothic style. Decoration of the interior was commissioned to Wyspiański, an Art Nouveau playwright, painter and designer, and a leading artist of the Young Poland movement, who defined the church's character with his floral frescoes and impressive stained glass windows.
