Author of Angels of Paris - An Architectural Tour through the History of Paris
Skipping along the pediment of a fine 17th century mansion in the Marais, a duo of cheerful cherubs drape garlands around an oculus (window). Intricately and lavishly carved in stone, the buoyant angels in asymmetrical poses, and the fancy shell with flying ribbon, signal a whiff of the unruly Baroque style drifting into classical French architecture. The building, today owned by a corporation, was designed by one of Louis XIV’s top architects, Liberal Bruand, to be his private home.
Hôtel Libéral Bruand, 1 rue de la Perle, 3rd arrondissement (Metro: St. Paul or Chemin Vert)
