I’m sharing photographs from two modest sized churches they worked on back in the 1930s. One was designed by the firm Eames & Walsh (yes, Charles Eames when he practiced architecture in St. Louis) for St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Paragould, Arkansas in 1935-36. Emil Frei worked to create impressive stained glass following a modernist compositional approach in most of the church.

The other church by Nagel & Dunn is St. Mark’s Episcopal church of 1939 here in St. Louis which is magnificent in every way. The stained glass designed by Robert Harmon and produced by Emil Frei is one of the masterpieces of socially conscious religious art in St. Louis, perhaps in the country. This talk will motivate you to go back to visit St. Mark’s and see it again with fresh eyes. If you’ve never seen it in person before, then you are in for a feast for the eyes and the soul.
