Palais de Gouvernement, Nancy

This palace in Nancy was the seat of Stanislas Lescinski, the father-in-law of Louis XIV. With the help of his court architect Emmanuel Héré de Corny (1705-1763), a student of Germain Boffrand (1667-1754), he built a most attractive residence which, in its varied forms, integrated with the fortified old town and with the planned new town. It is one of the major works of Rococo urban planning.
