Notre-Dame du Raincy--page three (of three pages)

Auguste Perret

Nave walls

Walls of patterns of glass dominate but more traditional narrative panels are centered in the bays as well, ten of which illustrate scenes in the life of the Virgin Mary. These central scenes were designed by Maurice Denis and executed by Marguérite Huré.
