Biography   Erasmus Humbrecht


The following information from www.bestofneworleans.com is the answer by Blake Pontchartrain, columnist of "New Orleans Trivia" to the question, "HEY BLAKE, who painted the large mural ceiling of St. Louis Cathedral?"

Erasmus Humbrecht, a Swiss-trained artist born in Alsace around 1849. Records show Humbrecht was 23 in 1872 when he began decorating the cathedral with a series of paintings as part of renovations to the building, which was reconstructed in 1850 to repair structural deficiencies and to make it larger to accommodate increasing numbers of worshippers. Humbrecht's art fills the cathedral, but his largest work is a painting of St. Louis announcing the Seventh Crusade, a 40-foot scene that dominates the back wall.
