Hébert-Stevens - Rinuy - Bony
Stained glass windows in the twentieth century
The Hébert-Stevens-Rinuy-Bony stained-glass windows studio is one of those that is most engaged on the road to modernity in the twentieth century.
Whilst producing religious stained-glass windows for churches that were damaged during the War, its members also took part in many large international exhibitions between the Wars and those organised in Parisian trade fairs. They presented exceptional works of art, from their production or stemming from the collaboration with some of the greatest painters of the twentieth century, such as Maurice Denis, George Desvallières, Marcel Gromaire and Henri Matisse. The studio strives to be involved in the renovation of religious art, trying to open the field of stained-glass windows to contemporary painters.
Through a selection of stained-glass windows produced mainly for these events, stored at the studio, and held in public collections, the Conches Glass Museum presented the first retrospective of this Parisian studio of glass painters of the twentieth century.
