  • Painting Description

    The "Plan of the Chateau de Forgette near Saint-Savinien" is a historical architectural drawing included in the "Recueil des Plans de Saintonge," a collection of plans and maps created by the renowned French cartographer and military engineer Claude Masse. Born in 1652, Masse served as the King's Geographer under Louis XIV and was instrumental in documenting the fortifications and landscapes of the Saintonge region, which is located in the present-day Charente-Maritime department of southwestern France.

    The "Recueil des Plans de Saintonge" is a significant work that provides detailed insights into the architectural and geographical features of the region during the late 17th and early 18th centuries. The collection includes meticulously drawn plans of various chateaux, fortresses, towns, and other notable landmarks, reflecting Masse's expertise in both cartography and military engineering.

    The Chateau de Forgette, situated near the commune of Saint-Savinien, is one of the many structures documented by Masse. The plan of the chateau offers a comprehensive view of its layout, including the main building, auxiliary structures, gardens, and surrounding landscape. This detailed representation not only serves as an important historical record but also provides valuable information for researchers studying the architectural styles and land use practices of the period.

    Claude Masse's work is characterized by its precision and attention to detail, qualities that were essential for military planning and defense strategies during his time. His contributions to cartography and his detailed plans of the Saintonge region have left a lasting legacy, providing a window into the past and aiding in the preservation of France's cultural heritage.

    The "Plan of the Chateau de Forgette near Saint-Savinien" is a testament to Masse's skill and dedication as a geographer and engineer. It remains an important artifact for historians, architects, and enthusiasts of French history, offering a glimpse into the architectural and social landscape of the Saintonge region during the reign of Louis XIV.
