I really enjoyed this charming little 20th century chapel.

Kinda out of the way so does not get many tourist visits, but this little beauty should be. Just a little chapel built in the early 1900's by an immigrant recently converted to... read more

This Chapelle is bridge between Japan and France, between sintoism and Christian religion. it is seems to be so little, but great and powerful inside.

Florentine renaissance architecture and Japanese style come together in the XX century in part of the Mumm estate in Reims, that has to be worth a visit alone. The mixture of japanese style of drawing and figures in frescos depicting classical biblical scenes are more and more fascinating the more you look even though they are disorientating to 'western eyes'....

The place is small and easy to access. The big attraction is the painting made on the inner walls. Fujita began to paint the walls when he was in advanced age and it was the first time he painted something in his life! The paints shows biblical scenes and presents strong influence from the japanese culture! It is very beautiful... More

A japanese born artist's creation of frescos combined with stained glass, sculpture and architecture by French artists create a strange experience. It is savage, but religious, dedicated to the virgin Mary and Christ's miracles.

The frescos are very original and different from all those typical of the 1200-1700s. The artist converted to Christianity while living in France through a religious experience, and although his sponsor for building the chapel was one of the Mumm proprietors, the paintings feel as if they are from the heart, and not a commission for some rich duke or...

This is a very small chapel built within the property of G.H. Mumm, one of the major champagne houses in Reims, France. Leonard Tuguharu Foujita was a Japanese-born painter who was active in the first half of the twentieth century in Japan and France. This chapel was his last artistic creation in the mid 1960's with scenes from the Bible... More

It was not open so could not enter the gate and see the inside, no intersting at all. Not worth going all the way to see it.

His murals are the reason to visit. If your checking out the Museum of the Reddition or the Porte Mars then go a little further east... More
