Beautiful public building project called City Hall for the Place Dauphine in Paris.
We can date the project to the 1770-80s because of its antiquarian character.
Charles Maréchaux was the winner of the first prize for architecture at the Royal Academy in 1755 for a project of sepulchral chapel (whose leaves are preserved at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris).
Inscription: "Section and elevation on the main main courtyard."
Pen and black ink heightened with watercolor.
sheet: 21 cm by 51.5 cm.
