FLANDRIN FRESCOES

Saint-Germain-des-Prés Church, one of the earliest religious buildings erected in Paris and the capital’s very first basilica, is a priceless historical treasure. Unfortunately, the ravages of time spare no one, and the overall condition of the church has deteriorated steadily throughout the centuries.

With your help, we are convinced that we will be able to announce the good news that one of the most symbolic sites in Paris, and one of the world’s best-known churches with over one thousand years of history behind it, is to be restored in all its radiant splendor. It will be a visible sign, for all to see, of the Hope, Joy, and Progress of our international community of mutual help.

 

A tax-deductible* donation of $10,000 entitles a donor to join the ‘Hipployte Flandrin Society’.  By adopting one of the Flandrin panels,  you will be supporting the restoration of these great murals, perhaps the church’s signature artworks.

Listed below you will find a catalog of the 10 Flandrin Frescoes in the church in need of restoration and available for sponsorship. Each fresco is divided into two separate panels and scenes and each panel is available for separate sponsorship. Please click here for Flandrin's two Sanctuary paintings.
