Few Parisian mansions have been the subject of as much controversy as the Chancellerie d'Orléans, an early 18th-century jewel redecorated in the 1760s by architect Charles De Wailly for the Marquis de Voyer, one of the greatest collectors and patrons of his time.

Despite fierce polemics, the decors of this hotel next to the Palais-Royal were dismantled piece by piece in 1923 to facilitate the expansion of the Banque de France. Meticulously restored over an eight-year period, the decorations have now found their place on the ground floor of the Hôtel de Rohan, in the quadrilateral of the National Archives.

This book details the ornamentation and history of the Chancellerie d'Orléans, a concentration of decorative arts in which the greatest artists collaborated (Boffrand, Pajou, Lagrenée, etc.), and recounts a whole section of the history of French heritage, from the 18th to the 21st century.
