Notre Dame Cathedral – one of the most famous temples in the world, an outstanding architectural monument, praised by poets, writers, artists. Slim structure of the Cathedral, aspiring to heaven is visible from afar. This was a new extraordinary style for Europe. The large oil painting link will show all its grandeur. Gothic architecture had not been widespread at that time yet.
The art oil painting created by Afremov is marvelous. The cathedral as if covered with gold on his canvas. It beautifully contrasts the dark sky.
The first stone was laid in 1163 in the presence of Pope Alexander III. Construction lasted from 1163 to 1345. This creation became the phenomenon for new Europe, and people from all over the world still admire this masterpiece that was created many centuries ago but we still strive to Paris to see how it looks in reality.Artworks with these legendary plots would look great on large-scale picture.
