NL – Paris in autumn


nl-paris

In 2011 I made a trip to Paris, once more following the route of Paul Benjaminse. Maybe the most beautiful section of the route was the Thiérache region, with the characteristic fortified churches. Also I came across the church in Jeantes, in which the Dutch artist Charles Eyck did both the murals and the leadlights. In Paris I went to the Musée d’Orsay.
I was lucky with the weather – never a lot of rain or wind. There was stunning beauty of both low autumn sunlight and the so called boring grey days.

I made a picture video of this trip, with Dutch voice-over. Watch in full screen mode!

    Most of the art work is done by the Dutchman Charles Eyck, including the windows.

    In the Thiérache region churches are built like fortresses to scare the enemy.
