Angel of the Month

Author of Angels of Paris - An Architectural Tour through the History of Paris
Languid, sensual angels drift in a wave of lush drapery as they gently lift a crowned medallion of the arms of Anne of Austria. The queen was childless during twenty-two years of her marriage to Louis XIII. She vowed to erect a magnificent temple to God, dedicated to the Nativity, if she were to bear a son. In 1638 Louis Dieudonné, "the God-given," was born. The shield’s baby dolphin heads are a charming allusion to the French dauphin, which signifies at once the aquatic mammal and the word denoting the heir to the throne. The temple, named Val-de-Grâce Church, is located at place Alphonse Laveran in the 5th arrondissement (metro: RER Port Royal).
