Mary Crowned by Christ the King (detail)

Frederic Rault, Rennes, France

1979

Frederic Rault's painting style seems to have an Eastern influence. These women appear Middle Eastern, and are quite different than the typical depiction of Biblical figures as Europeans. Comparable faces may be seen in Frederic's great Assumption Window in the Gravelbourg Cathedral.
