A recent Bulletin Monumental (167-4) carries an obituary of Anne Prache (b. 1931), who died May 1, 2009. “A great figure in the history of art,” she was educated at the Ecole du Louvre and the Sorbonne, authored numerous books and articles, and eventually returned to the Sorbonne as professor of medieval art. She completed her doctorate in 1975, under Louis Grodecki, on the gothic sections of Saint-Rémi de Reims. It was published in 1978, “a reference work characterized by its balance of context … and deep architectural analysis.” She is credited with having resolved numerous longstanding controversies in the field of gothic architecture. A festschrift was dedicated to her in 1999, Pierre, lumière, couleurs. Etudes d’histoire de l’art du Moyen Age offertes à Anne Prache.
