Christ Crowns His Mother

Frederic Rault, Rennes, France

1979

As far as we know from the New Testament this scene did not occur during Mary's lifetime. It might be described as theological or even theoretical.


The Lafleche windows can be considered an extension of the large installation begun in 1977 in the nearby Assumption Cathedral at Gravelbourg. Frederic Rault was in the process of assuming leadership of the Rault studio from his father Andre in the late 1970s. Ste Radegonde and Assumption Cathedral were his first Canadian commissions.
