Jacques Grüber

Born in 1870, Jacques Grüber is a very important master glassmaker of the Ecole de Nancy, of which he is one of the main founders. Regular attendance at the Parisian workshop of Gustave Moreau enabled him to master drawing and painting, an apprenticeship that was a determining factor in his career as a decorator. On his return to Nancy, he taught decorative composition at the Beaux-Arts and, at the same time, made decorations for Daum’s vases and Majorelle’s furniture.

Grüber masters Art Nouveau to perfection, and enjoys reinventing it through his chosen speciality: stained glass. Indeed, the famous glassmaker will remain the great master of modern stained glass of his time. Grüber carries out an astonishing modernization in the art of polychrome stained glass with the use of English glass and glass cabochons in relief.

His remarkable talent can be seen in the graphic and pictorial quality of his work. A skilful superimposition of coloured and engraved glass allows him to affix on his work the floral motifs typical of Art Nouveau. The art market presents a few rare paintings by the artist, mainly sketches of the stained glass windows, but also some ebony furniture, precious pieces that are much sought-after by our collectors in the decorative arts auctions of Aguttes.
