Circa 1756 Elevation of the Louvre
A fine rendering of the Louvre, originally published in the 1750s by Jacques-François Blondel, noted professor and architect to Louis XV, in his Architecture Françoise. It shows, in elevation, the courtyard side of Claude Perault's Collonade, built nearly a century earlier and considered to be the ne plus ultra of French Classicism. We've reproduced the rendering in grand scale, to suit the gravitas of the subject and highlight the astounding detail of the original engraving.
