Three Nincheri Altar Windows

Guido Nincheri, Montreal


Two Old Testament scenes prefiguring Christ flank a Rose window of Jesus at the Last Supper.

Guido Nincheri (1885-1973) was a Canadian artist born in Italy. He studied art in Florence, and came to Montreal in 1915, where he established an important liturgical art studio that flourished for more than four decades.

Nincheri made an estimated 2000 stained glass windows in churches across Canada and in several New England states. The Estevan windows are probably his only works in Saskatchewan.
