The famous Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral, whose first stone was laid by Pope Alexander III in 1163, was painted by Jules Cavaillès in 1950. With the two French flags depicted the artist shows the French pride in this beautiful monument. This work was probably painted from the top floor of the Hotel Notre Dame Saint Michel. Notre-Dame de Paris is a masterpiece of Gothic architecture with a rich history, cultural significance, and enduring impact on art, literature, and global identity. Despite the challenges it has faced, including the recent fire, Notre Dame remains a symbol of human achievement and resilience. Notre-Dame de Paris is a medieval Catholic cathedral located on the Île de la Cité in the center of Paris, France. It is one of the most famous and historically important cathedrals in the world. Construction of the cathedral began in the 12th century, and it was largely completed in the 13th century. The cathedral showcases French Gothic architecture and is renowned for its stunning facade, intricate sculptures, and remarkable stained glass windows.
