Max Ingrand

One of the most important French masters of art glass, Max Ingrand (1908 - 1969) was born in Bressuire, spent his youth in Chartres and trained in Paris at the École nationale superiore des arts décoratifs. The stained-glass windows of the cathedral of Chartres are the original source of inspiration for his work, which ranges from restoration to the creation of suggestive stained-glass windows that illuminate important French churches, from that of Sainte Agnès by Maisons-Alfort to that of Saint Pierre in Yvetot, for which he created the largest stained-glass window in Europe. Focusing on the technique of engraving acid and sand glass, bringing it to levels of extreme refinement, he also creates numerous mirrors and decorative panels. In 1954 he took over the artistic direction of Fontana Arte for ten years, and in 1967 founded his own brand, Verre Lumière.
