Shortly after belatedly posting a set of windows for last week’s challenge over at The Day After, here I am posting this week’s set for Lingering look at Windows….
I was going to post some stained glass from my travels at some stage, so here goes.
First up, ‘ancient’ stained glass…these pale panes are in the abbey at Le Thoronet in Provence, and are actually recreations of the 12th Century windows, made in 1935. I love the simplicity of design here…
Next, stained glass with a different history…these complex, dark panes were made with fragments of stained glass from the bombed out cathedrals of Northern France after the First World War. These windows are in the abbey at Fontfroide, in the monks quarters.
Next time I will post some images of modern stained glass in the same abbey, and some modern stained glass from Madrid.
