Theatre of the Mind is a painting based on the true story of the famous Parisian architect, Eugéne Viollet-le-Duc.  Working in the late 19th century, Viollet-le-Duc became known for restoring some of France's most prominent medieval landmarks, incuding Notre Dame Cathedral, Basilica of Saint Denis, Mont Saint-Michel and Sainte-Chapelle.  He was so associated as one of the fathers of Gothic Revival architecture, and developed new structural technology and design elements that helped create our modern-day understanding of Gothic Architctural style. 


Because of his decision to "romanticize" Gothic architecture, instead of conforming to the strict historical accuracy, he was met with much criticism from the top architectural critics of his time, only to ignore their accusations, and continue adding his own style to the already bueatiful buildings.  In the end, the style of Gothic architecture was improved, and many of those stylistic ques have become the normal by which we all apprecite Gothic Architecture.


This painting illustrates Eugéne Viollet-le-Duc's passion and pursuit of excellence in form and function, and celebrates the act of seeing a vision through despite the critisms of those who don't understand.
