Origin of Gothic Architecture

Mr. Camille Enlart, Director of the Trocadero Museum of Comparative Sculpture in Paris gave an illustrated lecture yesterday afternoon in the Fogg Museum Lecture Room on "The English Origin of the Flamboyant Style of Gothic Architecture in France."

By a series of slides of well-known cathedrals in France and England M. Enlart demonstrated that the later French Gothic style was the direct outcome, not of the early French Gothic, as has been supposed, but of the English Gothic. In no case did a given peculiarity of the flamboyant style occur in France without a corresponding peculiarity having existed in England at least 30 years before.
