REYNTIENS: BRITAIN’S LEADING STAINED GLASS ARTIST
Dr Libby Horner (www.libbyhorner.com)
Patrick Reyntiens – a brilliant raconteur, an extraordinary personality, hugely intellectual, an experimenter and innovator whose work has transformed the conception and construction of stained glass. Not merely the interpreter of the work of Cecil Collins, Ceri Richards and John Piper, but an artist of tremendous breadth and talent in his own right. Dr Horner has had unprecedented access to previously unseen sketchbooks and autonomous panels.
