Priory of Chassay-Grammont, Saint-Prouant

The deformations of the structure are authentic.

The priory of Chassay-Grammont, said also "Celle of Chassay-Grammont", of the ORDER OF THE GRANDMONTAINS, of the XIIIth century, established about 1195 by Richard I of England, 1157-1199. Registered on historic monuments in 1987.

A "celle" depended on the order.

The buildings of very sober architecture, group together on a square plan, the church, the chapter room, the dining hall, the dormitory, around a disappeared convent, which was made by wood.

L'order of Grandmont established in 1076 by SAINT-ÉTIENNE de MURET, 1046-1124, imposed initially to the monks, an excessive austerity, the solitude, the fast, the silence, the poverty, the survival by the charity and the manual labor, until a reorganization in 1317 by the pope Jean XXII, 1244-1334, which resolved a disciplinary crisis, between the brothers contemplative priests and the lay brothers charged with the manual labor, and which grouped together the "celles" of the order in priories. The order disappeared in the XVIIth century.

SAINT-PROUANT is a French municipality, placed in the department of Vendée of the region Pays de la Loire, populated with 1483 Prouantais in 2007, distributed on 12.9 km², that is to say 115.3 hab/km².

Bonsoir Joël,
Très curieux des distorsions de l'immeuble ressemble comme s'il était maintenant le porche pour l'empêcher de tomber. L'architecture est sobre, mais j'imagine que l'intérieur doit être intéressant.
Très bon point de vue de donner une bonne idée de ses dimensions.
J'aime aussi image Altered Image #2 avec son champ de fleurs.
Amicalement,

Bonsoir Joël,

Le chemin envoie mon regard vers le prieuré ce qui donne de la profondeur à la composition. La prise de vue permet de distinguer les détails et les couleurs de l'architecture du prieuré de Chassey-Grammont. La qualité de la lumière fait ressortir la beauté des couleurs. Bonne soirée.

Bonjour Joël,

The rugged elegance of the building resonates, deformation and all. I like 2-point perspectives in creating an architectural portrait, the "parallel lines" seemingly converging at a pair of vanishing points.

Warm regards,

Bulent

Il avait des problèmes de fil à plomb le maçon....ou alors c'est l'effet vin de Loire? Pas de fioritures ici; on ne devait pas rigoler tous les jours au prieuré! Jolie présentation de l'édifice en tout cas.
Amicalement

Hello Joël,
A very good point of view on this priory church. We get a good idea of the massive architecture helped by the three people. The sky contributes further interest and engenders some pleasing soft light and tones. Excellent clarity as always.
