Dr. Heinrich Oidtmann

Heinrich Oidtmann (1838-1890) was a German doctor, stained glass artist, and writer. Oidtman is the namesake of Dr. H. Oidtmann GmbH, the oldest stained-glass workshop in Germany.


Heinrich Oidtmann started his career as a medical doctor in Linnich, Germany and later established a stained glass workshop. Oidtmann drew inspiration in setting up the workshop from his use of glass slides.[1][2][3] His workshop would later grew into the Dr. H. Oidtmann GmbH by the efforts of his descendants.
