Angel of the Month
The Angel FlutistPhotograph by Rosemary Flannery
Author of Angels of Paris - An Architectural Tour through the History of Paris
For this month's angel, Rosemary writes:
The construction of the Saint-Ferdinand-des-Ternes Church began in 1934, according to plans drawn up by a team of architects in a Romano-Byzantine style. Work was halted during the war, and finally finished in 1957.
A splendid and vast church, it is rich richly adorned with mural paintings. This green-winged angel decorates the cupola of the Chapel of the Virgin, painted by Helene and Roger Bezombe, which is found on the left side of the transept. Its central scene illustrates the Coronation of the Virgin, and the side panels, such as this one, are decorated with a bevy of angel musicians in attendance. Painted in a charming naive style, this female angel garbed in green and with matching wings, plays her flute as swirling clouds float above and below her.
27 rue d'Armaille
