Catalogue Note

Marot's designs for both interior and exterior projects were hugely influential.  A similar signed garden view was sold, in these Rooms, 23 January 2001, lot 291, and a design for a garden theater was in the Houthakker collection.Many of Marot's drawings were probably for stage sets, but some, like the present one, may have been for actual gardens.  

Marot trained at the Court of Louis XIV, but as a Huguenot was forced to flee to Holland after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685.  His most important projects for garden designs and ornament were made for his patron, William of Orange, for the palaces of Het Loo and Hampton Court.
