El umbral (Threshold), from "Photographs by Manuel Alvarez Bravo"
1947 – 1977
Gift of Frederick J. Myerson
The vertical rectangular space of the image is completely filled with a detailed rendering of a section of an intricate Gothic portal façade. In the foreground a checked tile floor creates a recession into the space. In the center of the composition two doors are framed by a high, pointed arch. The space of the arch is filled with fine cut-out ornamental stonework. Arched niches containing figural sculptures flank each side of the main archway, and one also separates the two doors. The top of the image is framed by two rows of geometric ornamental decor. <br />
Beneath the image is an ornamental panel of simulated marble, on which the title of the image is written in gothic script: "Eglise Notre Dame / Les Andelys".<br />

A courtyard is depicted in the foreground with a doorway leading to a long passage in the distance at the right. The chief object of interest is the elaborate portal out of the couryard, flanked by columns and above which is a window with a balcony. Two faintly drawn windows are visible to the left, in front of which two figures sit together on a bench; there is indication of two stories of windows above the doorway, although the one of the third floor is only loosely indicated. The quoined edges of a tall wall at the right leads to a low wall on the right side in the foreground. In the foreground at the left are three children.
