Five Chagall vitrages were affixed to windows of Frauenmuenster Cathedral here during ceremonies at which Marc Chagall was present. These were the last of a series of painted glass works executed by the artist. Earlier vitrages had been executed for the Jerusalem Hadassah Synagogue, the Hammerskjold Memorial in New York, the Rockefeller Chapel in Washington and the Metz Cathedral.
