Description

Oil Paint on canvas

Signed on the front

The major influence was Monet ( the Rouen Cathedral paintings) and secondly, my hero, Cezanne. I particularly like the Romanesque excess of decoration but what is even more compelling, the image of Romulus and Remus, a pagan image that somehow found its way from Rome, standing sentinel before the front of the Cathedral. As though acknowledging the juxtaposition of Christian and pre-Christian images, the early morning light illuminates the eastern facade and some of the projected figures while the front of the building is veiled.
