Stained glass - Expo Paris 1937

Stained glass at the Exhibition Expo Paris 1937
Architect(s) : Y. Rousselot, Arretche et Arison

On the ground floor, after having followed in a model workshop the elaboration of a stained-glass window and the setting in lead, you could examine a series of small-format stained-glass windows and their fine details of execution.

The first floor was a huge, single room, where you could feel the grandiose impression of twelve large 1.30m windows.

Slightly set back were three cement-set windows of the same scale.

The light came from the north, calm and without any annoying shocks; the glass masters had wanted to evoke in your eyes the peaceful variety offered by the naves of our cathedrals.
