Angel of the Month

Author of Angels of Paris - An Architectural Tour through the History of Paris
May is the perfect month for visiting the abundant parks and gardens of Paris. In a little square in front of the Sainte Clothilde Church, among the trees and flowers, you will even see an angel. Sculpted in stone by Alfred Lenoir in 1904, this loving figure envelopes the19th century Romantic composer Cesar Franck with her outspread wings. Franck was the chief church organist, and one of his most enduring compositions is ‘Panis Angelicus’ - the bread of angels, a communion motet. Here he seems to be lost in thought, perhaps in a creative quandary, and the angel appears to comfort him as she unfurls a banner listing his most famous works.
Square Samuel Rousseau, 7th arrondissement (Metro: Solferino)
