It is part of the many Paris churches, built at the end of the nineteenth century, in the age of new technologies, including metal working, benefitted from lighter structures. This allows, with the use of a metal frame, make it cheaper and faster, while ventilating the Interior of the building. The architect Paul Marbeau (1843-1907), influenced by the universal exhibition of 1889, has widely used these techniques. Then, the architect has the choice between either, do the neo Roman with semicircular arches or neo Gothic, with arches broken or better still to use the beautiful and aesthetic Byzantine style. Just "Paste" on the metal structure of the fillings of the style you want. Here Paul Marbeau, chose the two in 1896. He made the novel neo to the façade, which has very beautiful scenery and it draws on Gothic neo, with push-button metal arches, which structure the Interior of the nave. This allows to have a very airy nave, view the altar of all places. In addition, the metal allows decorative fantasies, with pillars of support of the vault in visible structures, and lace. Create even the capitals of pillars molded with leaves, like the traditional capitals of the Churches made of stones! The façade is in four parts, covered with siding brick with the pinstripes and the highlights in white. It is structure of decreasing width up to the at the top, topped by a clerestory with three bells. This style is similar with the "novel of Liguria" (Genoa, Italy). The bottom of the façade, is open five semicircular arc, overcome a cornice. They open onto a wide narthex very bright at the top, there are five groups of triforium with mosaics of the Virgin and the Saints. Always with the number three, the third level in the form of capital, is open from three stained glass windows, but which are not visible from the nave. The Interior of the Church has a wide nave with the ambulatories open polychrome stained glass in a relationship. The heights of the nave, are also open stained glass between the metal structures of arch support. "All the windows historiés of Saints, in the beautiful style" Art Nouveau ", are notable decorative elements of this church. They are very worked and are the work of master Verrier Félix Gaudin (1851-1931) on drawings of Eugène Grasset (1845-1917), one of the initiators of "Art Nouveau". Félix Gaudin is a glass master of international level and was winner of the universal exhibition of 1900. The side chapels, including Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, are performed in the "Art Déco" style with murals, the work of Alfred Sauvage (1892-1974). The altar is simple, with a table full, topped a christ on the cross suspended and modern style. The way of the cross, is very well documented, with painted pictures of good dimensions. This church is open every day of the week from 8: 00 to 19:30 and on Sunday from 9: 00 to 19:30. It is accessible from the metro station "Victor Hugo" line no. 2, then take the Avenue Raymond Poincaré to the South, either 200 m of course.
Located in a quiet section between Trocadero and Victor Hugo Metro Station. Very nice design and architecture. more »
