Description

The chapel dedicated to Notre Dame de l’Assomption, church for the Blonville-sur-Mer parish, is a nice example of how modern techniques and materials were associated to the inspiration of the builders of medieval cathedrals. Painter Jean-Denis Maillart and canon Duvieu, who guided these works, designed this place. The frescoes painted on the cement of walls from 1960 and 1962 were inspired from and used the same symbolism as our cathedrals. A link between the New and Ancient Testament is established in the choir of the sanctuary by the series of patriarchs and prophets representing the 12 apostles. The mediator between the two is the Virgin Mary, who is there to accomplish God's design. The six paintings of the nave evoke the main steps of his life, from Annunciation to Assumption.
