Cultural Activity!

I happened upon the Church of Saint-Sévérin by accident today and was absolutely blown away by its stained glass windows. Designed by Jean René Bazaine, a midcentury French artist and writer, and made by B. Alain, the seven windows were added to the church in the 1960's. My blurry pictures do not do these windows justice - the colors are incredible, even on a cloudy day like today. And while their Abstract Expressionist style is totally different from the style of the much older stained glass windows of the church's upper levels, it all somehow works.
