The Chancellerie d’Orléans: Rebirth of a Forgotten Masterpiece

The Chancellerie d’Orléans was once a famed hôtel particulier built in Paris in the early eighteenth century. Its exquisite interiors were dismantled and stored in the 1920s when the building was demolished. In 2011, World Monuments Fund signed an agreement with the French Ministry of Culture that will result in the conservation and reassembly of the spec¬tacular interiors in the Hôtel de Rohan-Strasbourg. Bertrand du Vignaud, President of World Monuments Fund Europe, discusses these ongoing efforts in a lecture held at the Consulate General of France in New York.
