At the start of the 16C the work of Arnaud de Moles employs larger pieces of colored glass and usually achieves many shades of color in a single piece. The central sections are of human size figures and are clearly realistic persons with embellished features. Most stained glass after this group are known by the names of their creators. In this period, painting on flat surfaces became the method usually used and stained glass became progressively less often seen and almost disappeared until the middle of the 19C. During this time almost all of the window work became painting on glass , a lower quality of work. Only a small number of true glass works made all over Europe are enjoyed. The greatness of this type of creativity was only recognized in the 20C by Emile Male and other Art historians The last window of this set is of the Resurrection. In the central section on the left is Saint Thomas, in the center the arisen Jesus and on the right the Mary Magdalene. The second picture is of Elijah, the apostle Jude (or perhaps Simon), the Delphic Sibyl (and the Crown of Thorns) and finally Augustin of Hippo. The third picture is Joshua, the Sibyl Europe and Amos.
