Cornelis Floris de Vriendt, Choir screen, 1570–75.

Tournai, Cathedral

In keeping with yesterday’s turn to architectural sculpture, today’s post features the great choir screen of Tournai Cathedral. Carved in alabaster, red marble, and black marble, the imposing structure divides the space of the clergy and the laity in the church. Scenes of Christ’s Passion are carved into the square scenes on at the top of the screen, while a statue of the Virgin and Child (swipe) forms the center of the screen and marks the pulpit. Below, in roundels, are reliefs with Old Testament imagery typologically linked to the corresponding Passion scenes above. (Swipe) In one particularly dramatic scene from the right side of the screen, Jonah is thrown to the whale.

The choir screen was built in the aftermath of iconoclastic destruction that swept the Low Countries in the 1560s and that destroyed Tournai’s earlier choir screen. It was the work of the renowned sculptor and architect Cornelis Floris, whose designs were sought after throughout Europe. Floris here, as in his other works, embraced the antique style. The use of multicolored stones was also distinctive of his designs. The choice of a well-known artist like Floris for this commission served to promote the status of the church, the Catholic faith, and the city itself. While Tournai had once been the seat of a large bishopric, reorganization of the Netherlandish dioceses in 1559 greatly reduced its territory and power. Construction of a new choir screen—in expensive materials and by a famous artist—attempted to reclaim Tournai’s former glory.

That Monday morning feeling!
These guys have been staring out of the choir screen at Lincoln Cathedral since the 1330s.


You can just see hints of the medieval red and blue paint that would once have made this really colourful.

Église Saint-Étienne-Du-Mont

📍Paris, France 🇫🇷


The first king of the Franks, Clovis I, had a church built at the top of Mount Leucotilius where he wished to be buried together with his wife, Saint Clotilde, by the side of Saint Geneviève - the Patron Saint of Paris. After it was rededicated as the abbey church of the royal Abbey of Sainte-Geneviève. The abbey church also served as the parish church for the surrounding area until it became too small to accommodate all the faithful. In 1222, Pope Honorius III authorised the establishment of an autonomous church, which was devoted this time to Saint Stephen, then the Patron Saint of the old cathedral of Paris. By the end of the 15th century, Saint-Étienne having grown too small, the present church was built, upgraded and enlarged to finally be completed in 1624.

There are a few churches as specific and precious as Saint-Étienne-du-Mont in Paris. At the front entrance of the church, one can see a specific, even strange, blend of three different styles. The façade is indeed a transition period between the flamboyant Gothic style and the Renaissance style inspired by Greek-Roman antiques. At the ground level, the doorway is reminiscent of a Greek temple and the structure is topped y a high Gothic pinnacle. But what makes Saint-Étienne precious is the luminous interior where the choir screen and the keystone above the altar represents the real masterpiece of sculpting and craftsmanship. Also, the organ case was assembled and carved in 1631 by Jehan Buron, master-joiner. It is the oldest one in Paris, still in its original state.

On October 22nd 1793 the famous shrine of Saint Generviève was melted down, the bones were burnt and the ashes thrown into the Seine by the French Revolutionary during the Reign of Terror. The chapel was rebuilt in 1853 in neo-Gothic style containing the remaining stones of the initial sarcophagus where the body of Saint Geneviève had been laid.

The choir gate in the The Oude Kerk (Old Church). In 1681, the choir was closed-off with an oak screen/gate.

Above the screen is the text, "The prolonged misuse of God's church were here undone again in the year seventy-eight", referring to the Reformation of 1578.

St Helen’s, Sefton. To my shame, the first time I’ve been inside.

As soon as you walk in you are instantly confronted with the sight of the huge sixteenth century oak screen, silvered with age, and then the roof suddenly appears. Thrilling! Like all the best churches, the other excitements gradually reveal themselves; the wall paintings, the hatchments, the pulpit.

I didn’t take anywhere near as many photos as I would’ve liked to, I’ll have to go back!

(First person to spot Prince Philip of esteemed memory in this pic gets a ‘well done’)

13세기는 대성당의 시대입니다.

프랑스 북부에서 시작된 중세의 고딕교회들은 돌과 유리위에 지어진 전혀 새로운 종류의 교회였습니다.

찬란하고 웅장한 카테드랄!

카테드랄 Cathedral, 주교의 보좌를 뜻하는 이 단어는 점차 주교들의 교회를 의미하게 되고 더 높이 올라 갑니다. 카테드랄은 어쩌면 하늘에 닿고 싶은 인간의 끝없는, 가망없는 욕망을 그리고 있는지도 모릅니다.

미쉘쌤의 미술이야기 열두번째 이야기는 13세기 중세시대 고딕미술의
정신과 이념은 어떤 시간을 지나가는지 살펴 봅니다. 그리고 메트로폴리탄 뮤지엄의 중세미술관에 서있는 콰이어 스크린Choir Screen에 관한 흥미로운 이야기도 함께 나눕니다.

Saint-Étienne du Mont #choirscreen between #medieval and #renaissance style.

On this day in 1133, King Henry II of England was born in Le Mans in France.

He was the first King of the Plantagenet dynasty that encompassed 13 kings and 331 years of rule. The name came from his father, Geoffrey of Anjou who wore a sprig of flowering broom as his badge - the Latin name of this is plant genista hence Plantagenet.

As well as being King of England he ruled over a vast part of France, in fact he had more land than the King of France!

During his reign the first trials by jury occurred and Oxford University was established, but his reign is probably best remembered for the assassination of the Archbishop of Canterbury, St Thomas a Becket. Whether Henry wanted him killed or not is a matter of great contention but his words “Will no one rid me of this turbulent priest” led to four of his knights murdering Becket in front of the altar at Canterbury Cathedral.

Henry II died in 1189 after over 34 years of rule. He is buried at Fontevraud Abbey in France.

Choir screen, Medieval Sculpture Gallery, the only work of art in that gallery that’s not Medieval.

Any guesses as to why it’s there?

Two and a half hours of Skyping with @mowenemmerson about Anne Boleyn...so many fresh angles explored, and yet it still felt like scratching the surface.

My silly cat missed her opportunity to reach the birds on the tree - I wouldn't have noticed or cared 🌟🌲🐦🐈💛 Spoiler alert - we discussed how Anne was 500 years ahead of Vivienne Westwood & Katherine Hamnett, and why Google would have picked up on her straight away. You'll be able to watch this, and many more interviews with Tudoristas, on the Hever Castle website in January 🌟 #OwenEmmerson #Tudors #HeverCastle #AnneBoleyn #queenanneboleyn #themoosthappi #moosthappi #tudorhistory #thetudors #thefallofAnneBoleyn #inspiringwoman #meddler #meddlingwithannescause #yorkartist #historygirls #historynerd #lucychurchill

Staying with Gothic architecture for the next few posts after the overwhelming response to Friedrich Hoffstadt's treatise.

Here's the late Gothic choir screen of the #sintjoriskerkamersfoort , constructed from #baumbergersandstein around 1480. Master mason was probably #willembackerweerd
Very few choir screens survived the great iconoclasm in the northern Netherlands. Of those that remained, many were torn down in later periods. Anyway, such a delight, all this late Gothic geometric extravaganza, despite the missing statues!

Three tiny casts from of heads from @lincolncathedral , taken some years ago.

The central one represents a stonemason with his leather cap - but unlike the other two is C18th rather than medieval. Each is intricately carved and only 3” high. #lincolncathedral #pulpitum #choirscreen #ecclesiasticalart #characterful #plastercasts #medievalart #georgianart #stonecarving #grotesques #handmade #traditionalart #craft #stonemason
