Poem of the Soul (1854)

Louis Janmot was a student of Ingres, among others. His paintings reflect his staunch Catholicism. One of his major works was the 18-part Poem of the Soul. Exhibited at the 1855 Universal Exhibition, these paintings were apparently not well received.

 Divine Generation
 The Soul's Journey
 The Angel and the Mother
 Memories of the Sky
 Father's House
 Bad Path
 The Nightmare
 The Grain Seed
 First Communion
 The Golden Stairs
 Rays of the Sun
 On the Mountain
 One Evening
 The Soul's Flight
