“A modern-day reliquary-like structure housing restored 13th-century frescoes in a consecrated space”
The last major project to be completed by Dominique de Menil in her lifetime, the Byzantine Fresco Chapel opened in 1997. Like the Rothko Chapel, it is an expression of the spirituality that lies at the heart of all de Menil passions and projects. It is also a manifestation of the redemptive power of art: the chapel was expressly built to house thirteenth-century Byzantine frescoes that had been looted from their original home in a small chapel in Lysi, Cyprus.
