Patrick Reyntiens

With great regret we report the death of Patrick Reyntiens on 25th October 2021, just weeks away from his 96th birthday;  Patrick had a dream in which an angel told him he would live to 96, so he almost made it. We worked together on the Malachite film biography From Coventry to Cochem - The Art of Patrick Reyntiens (2011). Patrick really was the most remarkable character who managed to combine great scholarship, impeccable craftsmanship, profound insight and impish fun within a robust and down-to-earth personality which was a joy to work with. He has been described by the Daily Telegraph as the 'genius of 20th century stained glass’ - Patrick is totally irreplaceable.

His huge output of beautiful stained glass windows will live on to delight and inspire generations to come, who will be amazed, as we are, that so much was produced by one exceptional man.

After we completed the film, Libby Horner went on to compile and write the Catalogue Raisonee of Patrick’s work.
