    Description:

    The site it occupies was once the Roman forum of Trajan, the forum vetus, thus its name. It was built with private funds between 1872 and 1896 in a dominating position in the city, as a mark of the triumph of Christian values over the socialists of the Lyon commune of 1870, like the similarly-inspired Basilique du Sacré-Cœur, Paris. Its design, by Pierre Bossan, draws from both Romanesque and Byzantine architecture, two non-Gothic models that were unusual choices at the time.

    Description:

    This statue has been moved from the crypt to a side chapel of the nave and assembled into one monument to Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette.

    The change during the Renaissance in attitudes towards the affirmation of the individual is reflected in the later royal tombs at Saint-Denis. As with the medieval tombs, some were commissioned for the abbey, while others were brought in at a later date from their original places in various Paris churches, having been dismantled during the Revolution and r…

    Description:

    Commissioned by Francis I in 1516, was completed only in 1531. Possibly designed by Guido Mazzoni or Jean Perréal, it shows signs of an attempt to combine the French and Italian traditions in a monumental style. The two naked recumbent figures of the King and Queen, visible through the arcading of the superstructure, were placed beneath representations of the royal couple shown kneeling at prayer on top of the monument. These strikingly realistic figures are attributed to Guillaume Regnault (…

    Description:

    [The Sacré-Coeur Basilica is a Roman Catholic basilica and popular landmark in Paris, France, dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The basilica is located at the summit of the butte Montmartre (Montmartre butte), the highest point in the city.] One of the more exotic variants on the Basilican form is Paul Abadie’s design for the Sacré-Coeur (1875-1919), Paris, which has a Greek-cross plan expressed in a Byzantine Revival style.

    Description:

    Of the vast collection of sculptures planned for this work and entrusted by Primaticcio to Germain Pilon in 1560, the only pieces that have survived are this tomb (imperfectly reconstructed by Viollet-le-Duc). The tomb itself, completed in 1573, took the form of a temple guarded by four large figures representing the Cardinal Virtues, elegant works in bronze, executed in 1565 by Pilon and Jacquiot Ponce. Inside the temple lie the effigies, represented naked; while adhering to the tradition es…
