The chapel The Jesuit college of St. Louis-de- Gonzague was rebuilt from 1933 to 1935 by the architect Henry Violet. The chapel, made of reinforced concrete, is decorated with a "fresque" representing the main episodes of the life of St. Louis de Gonzague (1568- 1591), the work of the painter Henri de Maistre, director of the Sacred Art Workshops. This is a very fine example of the religious architecture of the thirties in Paris. The organ The date and provenance of the organ are unknown but it may be an old salon organ. It was bought by the college in 1964. His transfer was done by Eugene Picaud. On this occasion, the instrument was re-harmonized by Barbéris. The inauguration was then given by Marie-Claire Alain on May 27, 1964. Organiste: Laurent Jochum
