His activity as a decorator was dominated by an exceptional undertaking that was to stretch for nearly forty years: the execution, following an international competition won in 1895, of glass panels for thirteen windows of the Friburg cathedral (Switzerland). Their composition, rich and teeming, in which human figures mingle in an artificial intensely and luminously coloured decorative nature, follows Symbolism and Art Nouveau while paying homage to national traditions.
