by Kuznetsov_Sergey
 
 

Stanislav constructed the Triumphal Arch in honour of the husband of his daughter and the king of France Louis XV (Stanislav's father-in - law).

A copy of Septimus Severus? Arch in Rome, it glorifies King Louis XV through its ornamentation: bas-reliefs, inscriptions ?. It is topped by an acroterium celebrating Louis XV as Victor and Peacemaker and decorated with a medallion of the King.

The arch gives the finished view to the ensemble of the royal square though it is on some distance.
