At the heart of the appartements of the Princes of Condé in Chantilly, the two singeries, painted by Christophe Huet in 1735 and 1737, form the most beautiful decorative ensembles in the Château de Chantilly. Considered in the 18th century as pure fantasy elements, not even mentioned in the guidebooks of the time, the Petite and Grande Singerie of Chantilly are today among the most beautiful exotic decorations, testimonies of the 18th century taste for the Orient, along with those of the Hôtel de Rohan and the Château de Champs-sur-Marne.
This book explores the attraction of an entire period for the astonishing metamorphoses, caricatures or naturalistic representations of the fascinating animal that is the monkey.
