Église St-Nicolas, Brussels: Assumption Window

Posted by
MadScientist (Düsseldorf, Germany) on 7 August 2010 in Art & Design.

The assumption of the virgin Mary is depicted in this stained glass window by Guy Chabrol, dated from its last restauration in 1956 (unfortunately a bit obstructed by the church's organ, therefore looking a bit irregular at its borders).

This is the last picture of this series, we can't stay forever here, but if you like you may continue our visit with these additional shots:

The Saint Mary's chapel, the corresponding shot to Friday's image.
Two views (first and second) into the nave.
A look back from the celebration altar, facing the organ.
The St Nicholas altar.
And finally the Martyrs of Gorkum Shrine (their story can be read here).

Like the modernity of that stained-glass window. Great details and colors.

Very modern working of the stain glass as we would normally recognise. But beautiful nevertheless. Lovely shot and colours. I hope you had a word with the organist and they feel suitably chastised!!!

It took ages to download the image! Too many colours for an ADSL line! Lovely
