    Description:

    The lintel above the doorway, showing two scenes from the Lives of SS Hubert and Christopher, is the most impressive sculpture to survive and is probably the work of Netherlandish sculptors, including Casin d'Utrecht.

    Built in the eleventh century on a promontory overlooking the Loire River to control a strategic ford that was replaced in the Middle Ages by a bridge. Expanded and improved over time, on 4 September 1434 it was seized by Charles VII of France. Once in royal hands, the chât…

    Description:

    Formerly a small study of Louis XVI, redecorated for Napoleon in 1811 with a small camp bed of gilt iron and a Empire style desk by Jacob Desmalter.

    In April 1528 Francis I commissioned Gilles Le Breton for a programme of building (completed 1540) at Fontainebleau. The Cour de l'Ovale was to be rebuilt using the old foundations and retaining the old keep, while a gallery, now the Galerie François I, was to be constructed linking this with the Trinitarian abbey to the west, which was soon…

    Description:

    Only the chimney piece (1535-1537), with stucco work and a medallion painting (of the Marriage of Venus and Adonis after Giulio Romano) and the ceiling restored in the nineteenth century preserve the original decorations of Primaticcio (1534 -1537).

    Description:

    The present building was begun (1751) for Louis XV, King of France, by Anges-Jacques Gabriel. It was finished (1786) for Louis XVI by Le Dreux de la Châtre (b 1721) to Gabriel’s plans. The plan is trapezoidal, with the garden front placed at an oblique angle to the cour d'honneur, a complexity necessitated by the awkwardness of the site. There was no damage to the building during the French Revolution although the contents were sold (1795), and after a period as a military academy, th…

    Description:

    Originally built by Christophe Perrot in 1622. It was formerly the residence of Joséphine de Beauharnais, (later the Empress) and with the Tuileries, was from 1800 to 1802 the headquarters of the French government. It is the most complete expression of the Consulate style, and owed more perhaps to the taste of Empress Josephine than to Napoleon. Fontaine and Percier were received at Malmaison on 31 December 1799 and presented to First Consul Bonaparte by the painter Jacques-Louis David. They …
