The Revival of the Decorative Arts: the ‘Atelier Glasschilderkunst F.
Nicolas en Zonen in Roermond (NL) (1855-1968)’ (1fte)

In cooperation with the Centre for the Social History of Limburg (SHCL) and the Centre for the Regional History of Limburg (RHCL), the Department of History in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences offers a PhD position in transnational cultural transfer and stained-glass production. In the wake of the revival of the decorative arts in the second half of the 19th century the production of stained-glass windows also reached new heights. One of the prominent new studios was the NV Glasschilderkunst F. Nicolas en zonen, sedert 1940 Max Weiss, a company based in Roermond. It produced stained-glass that found its way to numerous churches and public and private buildings in the Netherlands, Belgium and other countries. The archives of the company have recently been catalogued and partly digitized.
