Marc Chagall – Stained Glass

Rummaging through old photos threw up these images, taken in a small church, All Saints’ Tudely, visited a few years ago. The church is a miniature gem, tiny and a bit out of the way. What distinguishes it are the windows, all commissioned from, and executed by Marc Chagall, whose work in paint is pretty luminous already. When his vision is applied to glass and light, it’s even lovelier. If you visit, I hope you are luck enough to find the church empty, so you can spend a few quiet moments bathing in the tranquility of the space. There is a sad story behind the commissioning of the windows, but what a beautiful legacy/memorial.
