Synopsis: This landmark study is the first to look closely at the stained glass produced between 1250 and 1325 in western France during the late Capetian era. Generously illustrated with a wealth of color and black-and-white images never before published including many from French churches now closed to the public, Lillich greatly expands our knowledge of both the art and the society from which it emerged. The period Lillich chronicles begins with the region's new vitality following the knights' return from the crusades and ends with the onset of economic uncertainty and unrest that preceded the Hundred Years' War. She reveals that the stained glass of this 75-year span is forceful and uninhibited, dramatic and dazzling, characteristic of what we now term expressionism. Lillich tracks and identifies painters, glazing shops, working methods, models, and sources to argue that the stained glass is a major style with its own developmental evolution and character, putting to rest the notion that this art is merely transitional and provincial.

Review: "An exhaustive, dense compendium of detailed information, readily accessible . . . [and] extremely useful as a reference source."--"Choice

Book Description University of California Press, Berkeley, 1994. Hardcover. Goldenrod cloth, white & color illus. dust jacket, 420 pp., many BW and color illus. "The first [study] to look closely at the Gothic stained glass of western France during the late Capetian era. Generously illustratd with a wealth of color and black-and-white images never before published -- including many from French churches now closed to the public -- [this book] is a landmark publication in the study of stained glass. [It] begins in 1250, as the knights of western France returned from crusade to their troubled provincial borderlands -- to the Aquitaine formerly of Eleanor and the Plantagenet kings -- far from Paris and court fashions. It ends in the year 1325, with the onset of economic uncertainty and unrest preceding the Hundred Years' War. The seventy-five-year span has been considered transitional in the art of stained glass, a passage from the color-saturated gloom of thirteenth-century Chartres and Bourges to the delicate, light-washed court style of the next century."
