In documenting stained-glass collections in the United States, the American Committee of the Corpus Vitrearum found a number of thirteenth-century panels that were removed from the ambulatory chapels of the cathedral of Tours in the nineteenth century. Among them are five panels representing subjects from Genesis that date to around 1260. Four panels are now in the chapel of the Pomfret School in Pomfret, Connecticut, and a fifth has recently been located in a private collection in New York. Other panels from the series are installed in the cathedral at Tours, whose chapter bought them in the early nineteenth century, possibly from the church of Saint-Julien in Tours. These panels can be associated with a workshop that also glazed the chancel of Tours cathedral, considered to be one of the major monuments of thirteenth-century Parisian Court Style stained glass in the period following the Sainte-Chapelle. An examination of the dispersed panels, however, reveals a popular quality that relates more to the artistic traditions of western France.
