16-12 Good Samaritan Window with Scenes from Genesis, Chartres Cathedral
(Gothic art, 1150-1400)
The master who was responsible for several stained-glass windows in the southern side aisle of the nave in Chartres cathedral cannot be pinned down in the shape of a single artist. Rather, the windows can be assumed to represent the combined efforts of a large workshop.

Few visitors to France’s 13th-century cathedrals are aware of the complex religious programmes which lie hidden in each pane of their colourful windows.

16-5 CATHEDRAL OF NOTRE-DAME, PARIS
(Gothic art, 1150-1400)
The Notre-Dame de Paris was among the first buildings in the world to use the flying buttress. The building was not originally designed to include the flying buttresses around the choir and nave but after the construction began, the thinner walls grew ever higher and stress fractures began to occur as the walls pushed outward. In response, the cathedral’s architects built supports around the outside walls, and later additions continued the pattern. The total surface area is 5,500 square meters (interior surface 4,800 square meters).
