Patrick Reyntiens died on October 25th 2021, he was vibrant and cogent to the end, but a short spell in hospital due to infections and embolisms brought his life to an end. We mourn his passing, but are thankful that his life produced such bounty for us to take joy in.
This site is dedicated to a particular series of works make by Patrick Reyntiens in the late 1980s and early 1990s. This was after Burleighfield House (see the Burleighfield Facebook Community here), the art centre Patrick and his late wife Anne Bruce ran from 1963 until 1976, and at which studios he constructed the tower of the Catholic Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King in Liverpool, had closed.
He had spent 10 years at the Central School of Art and Design, where he served as the Head of Fine Art, working alongside such contemporary artists as Cecil Collins, Mark Vaux, John Plumb and Sculptor Tim Scott.
Patrick retired from this post to continue his own stained glass work after a long and fruitful collaboration with John Piper.
These panels are all based around themes that have interested Patrick since his early years. Training in Latin and Greek history, philosophy and myth, as well as the teachings of his Catholic faith, all contribute to the resonance of the themes portrayed here.
Many of the panels may be purchased, some are already in private collections. They are all one-of-a-kind, and as such unique. All prices are on application.
If you are interested in purchasing a piece, please fill in our contact form and Edith Reyntiens, who manages this site will be in touch with you.
