Sorry to hear there was no Christmas mass in 800-year-old Notre-Dame Paris for first time since 1803. Here is three weeks before the fire. Hoping #Notre -Dame can be saved and open again. #paris#savenotredame
It’s a horrible shock to see the shell of what was the Notre Dame. But it’s still standing, and will rise again #savenotredame#paris

Notre Dame cathedral. Paris.

Véritable symbole de #Notredame , le coq était placé au sommet de la flèche, à 96 m de hauteur. Lors de sa chute, il est éjecté à plus de 40 m et échappe au brasier ! Il a été retrouvé quelques jours après sur une terrasse de la #cathédrale . Le coq a rejoint les statues des apôtres en cours de restauration dans les ateliers situés près de Périgueux. Ce soir nous consacrons une émission exceptionnelle au cœur de Notre-Dame de Paris.
Dans la nuit du 15 avril, #Notredame était victime d’un incendie d’une incroyable violence. En 45 minutes, le toit avait déjà presque complètement disparu ! La #cathédrale n’est plus qu’une immense plaie ouverte dans le cœur de #Paris . Actuellement, près d’une centaine de personnes œuvrent chaque jour à sa renaissance. Mercredi 13 novembre nous consacrerons une émission exceptionnelle à cette restauration.
And the most visited place in Paris this year was ..... Notre Dame de Paris 👏
Some 13 million people now visit the Catholic landmark every year – more than 30,000 every day on average – according to its official website, and it is believed to be the most visited structure in the French capital.
It was up on roof level that a spark 🔥from an unknown source ignited a fire around sunset on April 15 😢 whipping within minutes through the roof.
The 300-foot wooden spire, mounted about 150 years ago, tilted in the blaze and then crashed in pieces through the roof, bringing down with it the vaulted oak ceiling that Medieval craftsman built by hand in the 13th century.
We have found some images how Notre Dame de Paris looks from inside. It is a heart breaking view and it is a question if this tragedy could have been prevented.
Notre Dame Cathedral is currently closed 😰 for tourists and worshippers until further notice.
Nothing sadder tonight than not seeing Notre Dame lit up at night and with fencing all around. Glad I could witness this before the trajedy but look forward to being restored #savenotredame#notredame#paris
When Notre Dame was burning a few weeks ago my art teacher stopped class so we could listen to what was happening on the news. I had no idea the Cathedral was/is the home to so much artwork. It had always been a location I had only remembered from the Disney movie. I painted this and saved it in hopes I could get ahead and use it as part of a final project. I didn’t need to use it but am glad I painted it anyway. Is it just me or does The Hunchback of Notre Dame have the best soundtrack of all Disney movies? #notredame#paris#savenotredame#notredameart#hunchbackofnotredame#gargoyles#parisfire#always_art16
Es sin duda una desgracia lo que pasó en Notre Dame, como patrimonio histórico y cultural de la humanidad, como símbolo e identidad nacional de Francia.
Pero en países no occidentales, no católicos, no primer mundo, también han habido grandes perdidas, destrucción, muerte, hambre, saqueo. En la mayoría de los casos, provocadas por esta superestructura, por los países del primer mundo, por el pensamiento hegemónico, por la misma OTAN, ONU. #savenotredame#paris#france#francia 🇫🇷 #history#religion#catolicismo#travelblogger#world
The heart of Paris for over a 800 years is nearly destroyed. I’m at a loss for words. If you are like me and want to help, perhaps you will consider joining me in donating to their official fundraising organization, Friends of Notre-Dame. This is not a paid solicitation. Im just speaking from the heart.
Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris is a 501c3 public charity; all gifts are tax deductible in the United States.
Whatever you can spare will make a difference in helping to rebuild and restore this iconic symbol of Paris. Link in bio or search “Friends of Notre-Dame de Paris”.
Between 1910 and 1920, Utrillo abandoned simple motifs in favour of more ambitious compositions. Here he takes over from Claude Monet (1941-1926) who had produced a series of paintings of the facade of Rouen Cathedral, a series that was exhibited in 1895 at the gallery of Paul Durand-Ruel (1831-1922). Similarly Henri Matisse (1869-1954) and other contemporaries of Utrillo like Albert Marquet (1884-1959) and Robert Delaunay (1885-1941), took an interest in this theme.
The facade of the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris, built in the 13th century on the Île de la Cité, viewed from the front, occupies the whole canvas. Only a few houses in the Rue du Cloître-Notre-Dame are visible on the left. Utrillo here is interested in the tiered arrangement of forms and not in the sculpted decoration or the play of light. The three doorways are surmounted by a balustrade, which in turn is surmounted by windows framing the large rose window in the centre. Finally between the two towers we can discern the spire built in 1860 to the design of architect Viollet-le-Duc (1814-1879). The absence of any play of light removes all depth from this view and accentuates the mass of the facade, enlivened only by the red of the central doorway. The painting was never completed... @Museeorangerie
