France - Île-de-France - 77 Seine-et-Marne - Palace and Park of Fontainebleau
Room of the Guards of the King inside Château de Fontainebleau or The Palace of Fontainebleau in Paris.
Sent by Ann from France.
The architecture and decor of the Palace of Fontainebleau exerted considerable influence on the artistic evolution not only of France but also of Europe. François I intended to make a new Rome of this royal residence. It was in this spirit that he brought artists of renown from Italy, whose intervention marks the decisive stage in the introduction of the aesthetic formulas of the Renaissance into France.
