Long Description:

"The stained glass windows of the Notre-Dame church raise some questions: the most interesting part is of course the Renaissance stained glass windows coming from an old church in Épernay.

In contrast to the artistic scale, we also find, in the transept, stained glass windows of the 20th century of poor quality. Between the two, there are copies of Renaissance stained glass windows and pastiche stained glass windows of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, sometimes a bit coarse.

The website gives a large number of photos of stained glass windows, including the very beautiful Renaissance Jesse Tree from the Trojan School. "

"Les vitraux de l'église Notre-Dame soulèvent quelques interrogations. La partie la plus intéressante est évidemment constituée des vitraux Renaissance venant d'une ancienne église d'Épernay.

À l'opposé de l'échelle artistique, on trouve aussi, dans le transept, des vitraux du XXe siècle de piètre qualité. Entre les deux, on relève des copies de vitraux Renaissance et des pastiches de vitraux des XVe et XVIe siècles, parfois un peu grossiers.

Le site web donne un grand nombre de photos de vitraux, notamment le très bel Arbre de Jessé Renaissance de l'école troyenne."
