Henri Guérin

Glass slabs from the artist’s studio

6 March 2010 to 10 October 2010

Henri Guerin (1929-2009) is a painter who devoted his entire life to light reflected through glass. He is best known for his abstract faceted slab stained glass windows, which can be seen in over six hundred places (churches, public buildings, homes); these works of art can immediately be recognized by their large range of light and shadows.

Some of these stained glass windows, which were carried out for prestigious exhibitions, are still in his workshop. The Glass Museum is proud to present these stained glass windows created between 1954 and 2009, accompanied by more intimate works on paper (gouaches, wash drawings, and ink drawings) that demonstrate Henri Guerin’s evolution in style, as well as his sensitivity for creative stained glass windows, and the art of painting and glassmaking.
