Jean Cocteau: Church Decoration II
The chapel of St Blaise des Simples is set in a garden in the small town of Milly La Foret a short distance from Paris. This series of black and white postcards arrived today and show the amazing decoration of the interior by Jean Cocteau in 1959. The garden is dedicated to growing medicinal and healing herbs and plants, which explains the tall flowers as part of the scheme in the chapel. There are, of course, colour photos easily discoverable with your favourite search engine.
