Auguste Labouret
We discovered works by Auguste Labouret quite by accident, whilst looking for windows by French maître-verriers, François Décorchemont and Gabriel Loire.

Auguste Labouret was born in Laon in France in 1871, and was a founding member of the Sociétaire du Salon d'Automne and the Société des Artistes Décorateurs.

A prolific artist and mosaicist, Labouret developed the dalle de verre technique in France in the early 1930s, exhibiting a window of St Christopher in the Pavilion du Vitrail at the Paris exhibition of 1937. In 1939, Labouret designed and made the first dalle window in North America, for the Chapel of the Shrine of St Anne of Beaupre, in Quebec.
