This Meyron engraving was sold by Christie's with 375 pounds (well bellow the estimate):

Charles Meryon (1821-1868)

Back then it was South-Eastern suburban Paris. On the map of current Paris, it lies here:

This is interesting: on January 30 a decision will be taken on the plan to rebuild the missing, 90 metres tall, North tower of the Saint Denis cathedral (which has been demolished in 1854 after being weakened by a strong storm). The idea would be to finance the rebuild by organizing the construction site so that tourists can visit it. The entrance fee would have to constribute to an overall budget of 12-something million euro. The idea is based on the previous and successful idea behind the building of the neo-medieval castle of Guédelon, which is now Burgundy's second most visited attraction. If approved, works would start in 2018 and take a decade.

Hi all,

I recently saw an exhibition of Mexican art and in the rooms dedicated to the artists' visits and stays in Paris there was this painting bellow painted by Ignacios Rosas in 1908 and titled "Notre Dame":


http://www.spectacles-selection.com/...1900-1950.html

Do you recognize what church this is? It is obviously not Notre-Dame de Paris, the shapes are completely different, as are the surrounding buildings.

The fact that I can't recognize it makes me think it maybe isn't actually medieval, but one of Paris' neo-gothic churches, which however I don't have a good grasp of.

It's definitely not a Paris' church.
Maybe the painting was based upon a church somewhere else in France or abroad?


Anyway, I really like this painting, thanks for sharing.

Maybe it's la Cathédrale Alexandre Nevsky, the shape seem to be the same.

At first I was thinking the same, but its shape is pretty different actually, not to mention the surroundings (including the buildings, which don't look Parisian at all on this painting, especially the roofs).


P.S. (Russian Orthodox Alexander Nevsky Cathedral):



BTW, the two low-rise surrounding buildings we can see on the second pic are much older than 1908 (year of the painting, apparently).

The national comission of monuments has narrowly voted against the proposal (8 no votes, 6 yes and 2 abstentions). But apparently the ministry of culture has the last word, so it's not over yet.

This painting can be seen in the Saint Denis art museum:

This is nice - I didn't know, but the beautiful and little known Saint-Médard church is being restored:

So the ministry of culture has greenlighted the reconstruction of the tower in Saint-Denis. Looks like it's going to happen!
