Explore the Splendor of the Grand Restored Décor of Notre-Dame: A Journey Through Time and Art

A Renaissance Historical Monument:

Nestled in the heart of Paris, the Gobelins Gallery bears witness to artistic excellence and cultural preservation. With a storied history dating back to the 17th century, this iconic venue provides the perfect backdrop to showcase the restored grandeur of Notre-Dame's interior décor. As you step through its doors, you'll be transported to a world where art and history harmoniously converge.

A Timeless Treasure:

At the heart of the exhibition lies a collection of meticulously restored masterpieces in their former glory. Among them, twenty-one exquisite large-format paintings, including thirteen magnificent "mays," which once adorned the walls of Notre-Dame's nave. These artworks, created by renowned French painters such as Laurent de La Hyre and Charles Le Brun, offer insight into the religious fervor and artistic innovation of their time.

Journey Through the Centuries:

As you stroll through the gallery, you'll discover other remarkable treasures that graced the sacred halls of Notre-Dame. Admire the intricate tapestry depicting the life of the Virgin Mary, woven in the 17th century to adorn the cathedral's choir. Behold the majestic Savonnerie carpet, gifted by King Charles X, whose restoration marks a triumph of craftsmanship and dedication.

The Art of Restoration:

Behind every masterpiece lies a story of preservation and perseverance. Since the devastating fire of 2019, a team of over a thousand artisans has worked tirelessly to restore Notre-Dame to its former glory. Among them, talented painters who breathed new life into the grand "mays" and other artworks. Thanks to their expertise and dedication, these artisans have ensured that Notre-Dame's legacy endures for generations to come.

Revelation of Hidden Gems:

In addition to the restored treasures, the exhibition offers a glimpse into the future of Notre-Dame's interior décor. Models of future liturgical furnishings, currently in production, provide a tantalizing glimpse of the cathedral's renewed splendor. From restoration to creation, the exhibition celebrates Notre-Dame's ongoing legacy as a beacon of artistic excellence and cultural heritage.
