Church of Notre-Dame-de-Lorette, Paris: Interior
Architecture Library, Hesburgh Libraries
Notre-Dame-de-Lorette renewed the basilican type for church design but incorporated archaeological details from the portico of the Doric temple at Cori, southeast of Rome, and the Corinthian capitals of the Temple of Antoninus and Faustina in the Forum Romanum. The church was most noted for its rich interior painted decoration, both frescoes and panel paintings in the nave clerestory, (by Eugène Deveria) as well as for its subtle adaptation to the new axes of the city suburbs.
