Fontainebleau, Quartier Henri IV

The highly disputed restauration of the offices courtyard facing the town of Fontainebleau, built under Henri IV, underwent a restauration campaign that left its walls painted in a yellowish tone, much to the regret of many scientists, who claim the restauration was falsely colored, only based on color fragments found on the premises, that were actually stone fragments bearing their natural color instead of a suspected applied color coating...






The castle is currently constructing a huge scale model of the domain at the time of Henri IV, which will be unveiled by the end of the year.

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
