Jean-Jacques Duval Synagogue Photo on Cover of Glass Art

Jean-Jacques Duval Synagogue Photo on Cover of Glass Art

Here is a photo credit I didn't expect - the cover on 'Glass Art'. It's a synagogue window at Congregation B'nai Jacob in Woodbridge, Connecticut from the early 60's by artist Jean-Jacques Duval. Glass Art has a profile of Duval, who is till actively at work.  

I blogged about his work earlier in the year and am quoted in the article.  You can read my earlier account and see more pictures at 

After I posted that piece last June, I heard from several people.  

Contemporary artist Jeanette Kuvin Oren,  a member of Congregation B’nai Jacob in Woodbridge, CT. sent in a photo of the Ark curtain she made in the 1994-95 for the Jewish Theological Seminary inspired by Duval's glass. 

Synagogue maven Julian Preisler sent in these three photos of contemporary synagogues with Duval windows.

 We still need to get better pictures of the sanctuary interiors with all the glass.  Thanks Julian!
