Fountain of Life, Claude Courageux, Beuavais


Born in August 8, 1938 in Beuavais, Claude Courageux was educated at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He spent a number of years with other glass makers in Paris, including working with Max Ingrand, and seven years working at the firm of Jacques Gruber.


In 1962 he started his own studio and is an acknowledged expert in the restoration of 16th and 17th century stained glass, having restored windows in Amiens and Chalons-en-Champagne, and the glass at St. Etienne de Beauvais.


In 2009 a major fire destroyed the studio, including a number of 16th century works that had been recently restored.
