Cour du Cheval Blanc

1528 - 1540

Why is it canonical?

The Cour de Cheval Blanc, part of the Fountainebleu chateau, shows a literal transformation from traditional, French, medieval architecture to Renaissance Italian. The staircase and lower level columns are clearly influenced by Italian architecture (most notably in Venice), and demonstrate just how popular the Italian style had become.
