Project for a castle circa 1730-1760

Beautiful architectural design in pen and wash painting. French school
The decorative program based on statues and reliefs develops the theme of Apollo and Diana.
The pediment has Latona surrounded by frogs, and the terrace is decorated with statues of Niobids, killed in retaliation by the two Olympians represented in figures creeping above the pediment. The niches on either side of the entrance are adorned statues of Bacchus and Venus.

The project whose original style is Regency has been modified in the years 1750-1760 by adding a half laminated sheet, adding a floor to the initial project and developing the façade by adding aisles topped by terraces.
