Windows by Patrick Reyntiens - Maker

Patrick Reyntiens was born 1925, in London. He was educated at Ampleforth College, Edinburgh College of Art and St Marylebone School of Art. He worked as assistant to J.E. Nuttgens, friend and neighbour of Eric Gill at Piggotts Hill, near High Wycombe. He set up an arts educational centre later known as the Reyntiens trust with his artist wife Anne Bruce at Burleighfield House in Loudwater, Buckinghamshire. He is best known for his 35-year collaboration with John Piper, with whom he worked on commissions for the Baptistery Window at Coventry Cathedral (1957-61), and the lantern tower of Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral (1963-7), for which he is jointly credited as designer. Church commissions in Buckinghamshire include Christ Church Flackwell Heath, St Mary the Virgin's Church, Fawley, St Mary the Virgin, Turville and St Paul's Bledlow Ridge. His work is included in the stained glass collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
