A Gothic identity brought by Clement VI
The successor of Benedict XII, Clement VI continued for ten years with the architect Jean de Louvres the work initiated by his predecessor and brought Gothic elegance into the Palais des Papes of Avignon. He made the ribbed intersections abound and adorned the stone with sculptures, rib caps, or moldings. The supreme pontiff also magnified the palace by the attention and the magnitude he granted the ornamentation, whether frescoes, stained glass, goldsmithery, furniture, or hangings. When he died in 1352, most of the buildings had been built, and the completion works and comfort fittings were carried out by Innocent VI and Urban V.
