About This Image

There is another copy of this image in the Bibliotheque Nationale France. That photograph is signed and titled. The image shows the newly restored Wing and Tower of Princes. The photograph was taken on September 30, 1854.The Château de Chambord in Chambord, Loir-et-Cher, France, is one of the most recognizable châteaux in the world because of its very distinctive French Renaissance architecture which blends traditional French medieval forms with classical Renaissance structures. The building, which was never completed, was constructed by King Francis I of France. Chambord is the largest château in the Loire Valley; it was built to serve as a hunting lodge for Francis I, who maintained his royal residences at the Château de Blois and Amboise. The original design of the Château de Chambord is attributed, although with some doubt, to Domenico da Cortona; Leonardo da Vinci may also have been involved.
