The Church of Saint-Hugues de Chartreuse

 

In Isère, the small church of Saint-Hugues de Chartreuse has become a museum of contemporary art. Sixty years ago the painter Arcabas began the very personal work that has to become a jewel of the sacred art of the twentieth century. These huge paintings, very colorful illustrate passages of the Gospel.

The peaks of the houses echo the mountains Peter.
....peter:): i agree Chad... the steeple and the Grand Som are needles jutting into the sky....petersmile
C'est un très beau cadrage Peter, je ne l'ai jamais testé sur ce côté là . C'était une excellente idée. Bisous pour vous 3
....peter:): merci Marie ... j'ai eu de la chance avec la façon dont le clocher semble correspondre au Grand Som comme des aiguilles pointant vers le ciel ... bisous de nous 3

What a lovely scene with the church set against that mountain backdrop.
The mountain and the steeple reaching for the sky. A lovely picture and I can't wait to see inside!
Mountains also have a churchlike shape.
