This photo of the Museum’s Chapel features Paul César Helleu’s The Interior of the Abbey Church of Saint Denis. The painting is surrounded by dark wood and stained glass, some featuring images of Saint Denis and some from churches in France. The end result is a work of art within an installation that is a work of art itself, something Isabella was a master of. Image: Paul César Helleu, The Interior of the Abbey Church of Saint Denis, about 1891, oil on canvas.
