In 2010, the City of Chalonnes-sur-Loire called on the services of a duo composed of visual artist Pierre Mabille and master glass artist Gilles Rousvoal to rework 12 of Saint-Maurille Church’s 14 stained-glass windows (the church is a listed Historical Monument). The project was voted “best national artistic submission” of 2012 by the Ministry of Culture and Communication’s National Advisory Committee on Public Commissions, for the quality of its creation and renovation. The contemporary stained-glass windows that now form an immediately apparent ensemble (blue in the south and yellow in the north) were inaugurated on 28 June 2014.
The Heritage Inventory Directorate recently published a new work in the Parcours du Patrimoine series on Notre-Dame collegiate church in Cléry-Saint-André.
