Eglise St Paul St Louis fondee en 1627, Paris, France
The church of St Paul and St. Louis, founded 1627 in Paris, France.

The French text on the card reads:

Le portail est composé de trois ordres; il rappelle par la profusion de son ornementation les Eglises romaines du XVI siécle. Il est orné des statues de Saint Louis, par Lequesne, Sainte Catherine, par Préault, Sainte Aure, par Etex. Les bénitiers sont formés de deux coquilles offertes par Victor Hugo à l'occasion de la naissance de son premier enfant. A l'intérieur, la Vierge assise, par Germain Pilon et des peintures de Delacroix.

The gate is composed of three orders; the profusion of its ornamentation recalls the Roman Churches of the sixteenth century. It is decorated with statues of Saint Louis, by Lequesne; Saint Catherine, by Préault; and Saint Aure, by Etex. The stoups are made of two shells offered by Victor Hugo at the time of the birth of his first child. In the interior is found the Virgin sitting, by Germain Pilon; and the paintings of Delacroix.
