'St Louis Cathedral' interior, on Jackson Square

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

St Louis Cathedral interior. For some reason,I only took one photo,but it turned up OK.   

Records show Erasmus Humbrecht was 23 in 1872, when he began decorating the cathedral with a series of paintings as part of renovations to the building, which was reconstructed in 1850 to repair structural deficiencies and to make it larger. Humbrecht's art fills the cathedral, but his largest work is a painting of St. Louis announcing the Seventh Crusade, a 40-foot scene, that dominates the back wall.

  According to records of the archdiocese, Humbrecht's bill was $1,950, which included $250 for the ceiling mural in the sanctuary, a work he named The Sacrifice of the Divine Lamb.

  Twenty years later, in 1891-92, Humbrecht was in charge of another renovation at St. Louis Cathedral. He personally refreshed his earlier paintings and added more. At the same time, he changed the color scheme in the interior.

Pěkné foto interiéru.Dobrá práce.


Ps:Také nevím proč se ten zámek u mne jmenuje Červená Lhota.Na mapě se to najde pod názvem Pluhův Žďár.To je kousek od tud.Je tam hřbitov,kostel a u něho nejmenší zámek co jsem kdy viděl.

Ahoj Tome,Karel
