1981 - Famous contemporary artists sacred art exhibition at the Sacré-coeur

Translation of the documentary

Host: "On September 1, you might have time to visit a sacred art exhibition that takes place in the Sacré-Cœur’s crypt. Sacred art has been a recurring subject in many works and a long-term tradition for many artists – unexpected ones at times. Micheline Sandrel."

Micheline Sandrel : "The Picture Rails of the Sky – it is the exhibition title – have taken up residence in the Sacré-Cœur’s crypt. In the lobby, two tall paintings from Bernard Buffet: Lucifer and Traitors Frozen in the Ice.

The setting of the exhibition - the crypt, its walls and the chapels - emphasizes the character of the works and provides them with a space that, too often, is missing.

The Escape to Egypt by Louis Toffoli.

A stained-glass window project by Yatridès: Fisher of Men.

By Guy Séradour, recipient of the Gemmail Award: Prayer.

The visit becomes a meditation, and lies perfectly within this tradition of religious arts that aspires to create an atmosphere, another silence.

Recipient of the Gemmail Award: Lurçat.

The central part of a tryptich by Margotton: The Crucifixion.

This Holy Face was made by Pierre Henri, recipient of this year’s Gemmail.
