Of the three stained glass windows, my favorite, by far, is the one in the middle. The other two are in a style that is called sulpicien, from the church of Saint-Sulpice, one of the largest in Paris. Perhaps because on the streets around that church thrived many religious stores selling bondieuseries of that more than formal kind of style, typical of the second half of the 19th century.
Now of the three statues, the two on the left are obviously of that sulpicien style. I'm not a specialist, but I think the style of the older statue on the right is much more interesting than that of the other two. I think the statue on the extreme left is that of Jean-Marie Vianney, a.k.a. le curé d'Ars.
I just like the colors of the windows. And I try to document what exists. Maybe my point of view is too American. Young country, and all.
I agree with you concerning the colors and the contrast between the styles which shows their evolution across the ages. There has been a tendency in the last few decades for informal stained glass windows mostly without or with very little obvious religious suggestion, but with bright colors. That's the kind I like.
Bon dimanche! I am late to the discussion but I like the stained glass window on the right: the robe, the flag, the chivalrous outfit.
Oh I love the one in the middle !
The middle one is my favorite, also. The colors are nice on the right hand side one. Bon Dimanche from 'Bama where the dogwoods are just beginning to bloom and the azaleas are coming on.
It's snowing here this morning...
Ken you are so so so good at taking photos of stained glass!
The statue on the left looks exactly like the late great Voltaire. I wonder what he would have thought of being sculpted in clerical garments. Roderick
What's on your mind? Qu'avez-vous à me dire ?
