Notre-Dame du Finistère: Window

Posted by MadScientist (Düsseldorf, Germany) on 4 September 2010 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

Another beautiful window in Notre-Dame du Finistère, made by de Pluys and Berns between 1853 and 1870.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

Exquisite! Both the window -as a work of art - and your shot of it! Colours, clarity, focus....THRILLING! (Only I wish I knew the story about what's going on here.)

@Japanalia: This is a procession in honour of the virgin Mary, probably remembering of the church's consecration.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Difficult to think if I've ever seen a better rendition of stained glass. The colours, contrast, and clarity are quite stunning.

@Curly: Thanks a lot, Curly! You'll like my Prague pictures, too. Lots of stained glass there.

António Pires from Lisbon, Portugal

Perfect framing. I restate what Curly wrote.

There y'go again . . these are the best stained glass presentations I know of next to going there ! I have a feeling they are better than the originals.

@Ronnie 2¢: Wait until you see the ones from Prague. You will like them. :-)

Phil Morris from Canada

The detail is astonishing as usual, your work is the best of its kind.

@Phil Morris: Ha, this would be great, but I'm still dabbling.

Twelvebit from Victoria, United States

Good job getting this shot.

@Twelvebit: To be continued...

Derbyshire from United Kingdom

I am the great, great, granddaughter of JF Pluys. He is the gentleman with the beard in the lower left hand corner of the window. I have a copy of his obituary, "De Belgische Illustratie" dated Jaan 1873 , a catalogue his works and that of his son Leopold.
