    Description:

    In 1549 Goujon collaborated with Jean Cousin in organizing the ceremonial entry of Henry II into Paris, an event that allowed the new generation of classicizing artists to display their skills.

It was, until 1787, a rectangular structure on a corner, presenting two arched bays to the Rue aux Fers and one to the Rue Saint-Denis. Th…
