The architect and theorist Viollet-le-Duc (1814-1879) was a leading figure in the French Gothic revival and active in the restoration of medieval buildings. In 1845 he undertook the restoration of the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris - a task that was to take 23 years. This volume of 60 colour plates, reprinted from the original 1870 edition, shows in detail the abstract, representational and architectural motifs and patterns of the restored murals.
