Robert Pinart

Robert Pinart, internationally acclaimed glass artist, was born in Paris and studied at the Ecole National Superieure des Arts Decorallis & the Ecole Nationale des Beaux Arts.  He received his first practical training in the three top studios of Maitres-Verriere:  first with Max Ingrand, later with Auguste Labouret, and next he free-lanced for Jean Barillet.  In these studios he became acquainted with, and collaborated in, restoration of 13th to 15th century windows that had been removed and stored away in caves during World War II.  Pinart arrived in the USA in December 1951.  After a brief time with Payne-Spiers in New Jersey, he went to work for Rambusch until he went on his own in 1954.   Examples of Pinartís work can be found in the Cathedral of Saint Quentin, France, in Washington D.C.ís National Cathedral, in the dalle de verre and epoxy wall for the entry to the World of Darkness in the Bronx Zoo and in the Beatitudes windows for Ste Anne de Beaupres in Quebec, Canada.
