    Description:

    The square is a tiny park adjoining Notre Dame de Paris on the east side named after Pope John XXIII. The central sculpture within the neo-Gothic spire is the Virgin and Child, sculpted by Merlieux. The lower part of the fountain shows three archangels defeating the allegorical figure of heresy. The fountain is known as the Archbishop’s Fountain as the area, since the 17th century, had been the site of the Archbishop’s Palace and garden.

    Description:

    Henry IV laid out the Parterre du Tibre south of the Cour de l'Ovale and the Cour des Offices. It was so called because of the statue and fountain at its centre. Under Louis XIII, Louis Le Vau redesigned the Parterre du Tibre (1662).

    Henry IV made considerable alterations and additions to Fontainebleau. He enclosed a new courtyard (begun 1599) to the north of the Galerie François I and Cour de l'Ovale around the Jardin de la Reine (now the Jardin de Diane). The Jardin de Diane is now…

    Description:

    Latona Fountain by Balthazar Marsy.

The King acquired further land (at the end of his reign the estate extended over 2473 ha, now reduced to 815 ha) and had gardens designed and laid out by André Le Nôtre which would harmonize with Le Vau’s new building. Louis paid the greatest attention to the design of the gardens, visiting them daily whenever at Versailles. The grou…

    Description:

    General view of the entrance to the fountain, on axis with the pond and fountain. Salomon de Brosse was the architect commissioned for the Palais du Luxembourg and gardens. The fountain may have been built by Thomas Francini under his direction. In 1811 Chalgrin did a Neoclassical restoration. The later iconography includes the figure of the jealous Cyclops (Polyphemus, above and in a niche), who waits to crush the lovers Acis and Galatea. The figures by Ottin were added in the relocation and…
