Biography  
Valentine D'Ogries


Biography from James A. Michener Art Museum

Valentine D'Ogries' stained glass windows, frescoes, murals, and altar pieces grace many of the most beautiful churches in America. His powerful designs, reminiscent of English Gothic of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, joins the ancient and modern.

Notable among his works are his: Crucifixion, painted on wood, which hangs from the ceiling of St. George's Church, Chicago; the frescoes and murals in the Hatfield Chapel, New Canaan, Connecticut; the stained glass windows of Trenton's Trinity Cathedral; and the sixteen 24-foot windows for the church of St. Thomas the Apostle, Chicago, which took seven years to complete.

D'Ogries first studied painting and sculpture. Disappointed by sculpture's traditional lack of color, he turned to glass making, which incorporates not only color but light.


Introduced to Bucks County by painter and stained glass artist, George Sotter, D'Ogries moved to New Hope in 1925. He used his talents as an architect and landscaper to build or renovate three different houses into beautifully proportioned homes and studios.
