In January, the Beaux Arts Alliance will sponsor four illustrated lectures on the history, architecture and arts of Western Europe, and it is the first of the presentations that I bring to Masons’ attention.
Titled “French Cathedrals: Faith and Glory: Paris, Chartres and Rheims,” the Jan. 5 program undoubtedly will showcase the stunning stonework of these cities’ medieval cathedrals. David Garrard Lowe, the noted author on the history of architecture, will be our tour guide.
This will take place in the Undercroft of the Church of the Resurrection, a landmark itself, located at 115 East 74th Street in New York City.
(This is a second chance for those of us who missed his presentation on this subject last April at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.)
Reservations are required. Phone: (212) 639-9120. Admission costs $30 per lecture.
