Glass heritage in Schaerbeek/ Schaarbeek
The restored Saint-Servais/Sint-Servaas Church will form the backdrop for this fascinating exploration of Schaerbeek/Schaarbeek’s rich glass heritage, which was created by several generations of ‘light artists’, many of whom were based in the municipality. The lecture will focus on the stained-glass windows illuminating the municipality’s religious buildings. From the Royal Church of Sainte-Marie/Sint-Maria to Divin-Sauveur/Goddelijke Zaligmaker Church, Schaerbeek/Schaarbeek boasts an amazing panorama of landmarks in religious architecture, and therefore also stained-glass art, dating from the mid-19th century to the late 20th century and ranging from eclecticism to modernism. Yves Jacqmin, art historian and board member of the non-profit local heritage organisation Patrimoine de Schaerbeek, will guide you through the magnificent creations of master glassmakers including the Colpaerts, Steyaert and Majerus.
In cooperation with Patrimoine de Schaerbeek (PatriS) and Saint-Servais/Sint-Servaas Church Administrative Council.
