Marble masons who worked for the King of France never got the fame and celebrity of Grand Siècle painters, sculptors, architects or even cabinetmakers. However, they were capital craftsmen to the greatest realizations of the 17th and 18th centuries.
This "history of marble" is based on ancient sources, on documents kept in the French National Archives and on the study of the works. It explores the material and the issues of its supplies, the men who worked it, or the works that came out as polychromic canvas, and gives a previously unread look on the decors that made Louis XIV's houses glory and beauty.
