This plate was one of 46 engravings from the King's Cabinet chosen to illustrate the collection of Views of Royal Houses and Cities conquered by Louis XIV. This collection represents castles and great bird's-eye views of royal cities: Louvre, Tuileries, Palais Royal, Collège des Quatre Nations, Vincennes, Saint-Germain-en-Laye, Fontainebleau, Monceaux, Chambord, Blois, Compiègne, Marimont, Stenay, Sedan, Mommedy, Jametz, Verdun, Metz and Marsal. Jean Marot's training as an architect is decisive in the way he deals with his subject - which, unlike other architectural compositions of the time, is empty of any anecdotal elements.Cabinet.
