I'm wondering if anyone here can recommend windows or other work by Daniel Cottier which can be viewed fairly easily? I'm in Massachusetts and would prefer to start close to home.
I'm also interested in publications which might show his work.
Thanks for any suggestions.- Tod

Tod,
Trinity Church in the city of Boston has 4 (four) Cottier windows located in the south transept aisle.
1) "Storm on the lake"
2) "Angel troubling the pool"
3) "Five wise virgins"
4) "Sower & reaper"

As far as publications of his work, I might have a book in our library. I'll need to look and get back to you.

Thanks for the quick reply. Please take your time but I do appreciate the information.

I see from following the lead of the windows you list to Virginia Raguin ("Selected Buildings and Their Glazing Programs") that Cottier also has work at Harvard's Memorial Hall. What a great resource her work is!

It seems a bit odd these windows were intially stated to be by LaFarge Studio......look at all the painted glass.....are any of the windows plated? In my mind the paint would have seriously questioned the La Farge designation......glad someone has figured it out.

This window is c.1877. LaFarge applied for a patent for opalescent glass in 1879. Additionally, this window came from a home in Newport RI where LaFarge sent lots of time and it was designed by H.H.Richardson who gave LaFarge a number of early commissions. So, there was a basis for the wrong attribution.
