The Glass Gallery is so designated because of the large collection of fifteenth- and sixteenth-century silver-stained roundels installed in the nine lancet windows looking into Bonnefont Cloister. The gallery also features polychromed sculpture of the later Middle Ages along with small tapestry hangings and a painted triptych. Small-scale sculptures in wood, stone, and terracotta are displayed in cases, along with a variety of decorative art including glass, ceramics, and metalwork.
