Long Description:

Between 1840 and 1865, the church continues to be redecorated to overcome the recent disappearances and demolitions: new stained glass windows were installed in the chapels, made by Marshal Metz, Vigné, Etienne Thévenot (1797-1862) or Antoine Lusson .

In the chapel of axis, a glass roof is installed, composed of panels on the theme of the life of Christ, inspired by those of the Sainte-Chapelle.

Painter and master glassmaker, Charles-Laurent Maréchal enjoyed throughout the 19th century a great reputation. At Saint-Germain-l'Auxerrois, he executed in 1847 the windows of the ten low bays, nave side. To the south, the biblical figures (patriarchs, kings of Judah and Israel), hieratic and severe, face, in the north, New Testament characters, framed by angels.

In spite of a bad aging, these stained glasses testify to the very particular style of Marshal who uses a very sophisticated technique (superposition of enamels and grisailles on glasses with very dense tones) to try to reproduce, in light , the velvety oil paint.

Entre 1840 et 1865, l’église continue d’être redécorée pour palier les disparitions et démolitions récentes : on installa de nouveaux vitraux aux fenêtres des chapelles, réalisés par Maréchal de Metz, Vigné, Etienne Thévenot (1797-1862) ou encore Antoine Lusson.

Dans la chapelle d’axe, une verrière est installée, composée de panneaux sur le thème de la vie du Christ, inspirés de ceux de la Sainte-Chapelle.

Peintre et maître-verrier, Charles-Laurent Maréchal jouit tout au long du 19e siècle d’une grande notoriété. A Saint-Germain-l’Auxerrois, il exécute en 1847 les vitraux des dix baies basses, côté nef. Au sud, de grandes figures bibliques (patriarches, rois de Juda et d’Israël), à l’aspect hiératique et sévère, font face, au nord, à des personnages du Nouveau Testament, encadrés d’anges.

En dépit d’un mauvais vieillissement, ces vitraux témoignent du style si particulier de Maréchal qui use d’une technique très sophistiquée (superposition de couches d’émaux et de grisailles sur des verres aux tons très denses) pour tenter de reproduire, en lumière, le velouté de la peinture à l’huile.
