"After the Revolution of 1848, the decoration of the church of Saint Vincent de Paul was attributed to Hippolyte Flandrin, supported by Picot (the latter remained in charge of the definitive decoration of the choir). The beautiful big painting that covers the walls of the nave shows the talent of Flandrin. He had already displayed it, in his first decoration of the church of Saint Germain des Pres, Saint Paul de Nimes, and the church of Anay in Lyon, and Theophile Gautier loved to praise 'this chaste, pure, and noble talent full of function'".
