(Seine-et-Marne, France)
This is an experimental section where John James is attempting to identify the carvers though the use of common templates and/or a recognisable manners of carving. Such a large-scale analysis of all the capitals in these buildings has not been attempted before. As an ongoing enterprise that is still in its infancy, we seek your input. John believes this has the potential to increase our understanding of how they worked and to provide a more solid basis for dating than we have had.
Lower courses for apse and first bay with massive buttresses, as if they intended a much bigger building; an elegant design for 6-part vaults.
East upper walls and vaults, apparently much lower than anticipated in the lower courses.
Two-bay south arm with pilier cantonne to open the space from the apse and a vice in the se corner; eastern window with bar tracery.
First stage of tower with access within roof from stairs.
