Everyone loves going to Marly! 18th century art

Jean Michel Moreau. Le Rendezvous pour Marly, 1776-83. Print, Etching and engraving. The Minneapolis Institute of Arts.

The Château de Marly was one of the three favorite homes of Louis XV!

There were many parties at Marly and of course gambling too!


  1. Ooooh so pretty!! I love illustrations like these!!!

  2. I am particularly fond of the little dog that mimics the equestrian statue!

  3. i enjoy this print as it gives a view of the back of the ladies' coiffure and the back of her dress
