Slide Lecture: Angels of Paris

Tuesday, November 12, 2013 6:00 PM

Description

ANGELS OF PARIS
An Architectural Tour through the History of Paris
Tuesday, November 12
6:00 p.m.

Join us for a slide lecture and book signing of Rosemary Flannerys book of photographs entitled Angels of Paris: An Architectural Tour through the History of Paris. Angels are everywhere in the City of Light, not just on churches but in unexpected places: holding a lightning rod atop the Théâtre du Châtelet, adorning a seventeenth-century gilded sundial at the Sorbonne, and hovering above a railroad headquarters. There, a beautiful stone frieze features young angels flying in to work on the tracks. Subtly, subliminally, these angels are a part of the fanciful and romantic spirit of Paris.

Angels of Paris features beautiful photographs taken from dawn to dusk, in all seasons, accompanied by text recounting the angels locations and the story behind each.
