DESCRIPTION

Details

Louis XV recovered from illness in 1744 and was so grateful he built this Neo-Classical church. Work began in 1764 and was completed in 1790. From a series of lithographs depicting the famous buildings of Paris - 'Paris dans sa Splendeur', published in Nantes and Paris by Henri Charpentier in 1861. Phillippe Benoist was one of France's most gifted topographical artists of the 19th century, he was both a master lithographer and painter. He began his career in Paris and by 1836 he was exhibiting his views at the Paris Salons and continued to do so until 1879. As an original lithographic artist, Philippe Benoist specialized in exterior and interior views of many famous European buildings.
