Description

Pierre Puget (1620–1694) was a French Baroque sculptor as well as a painter and architect. Never really successful at the court of Louis XIV, he spent most of his later life in Toulon and his hometown of Marseille. In 1681, shortly after his return to that city, he built this house consisting of a ground floor, a two-story entresol, and an attic.
The caption reads in the original French: Maison que P. Pujet s’était construite à Marseille, sur un terrain qui lui avait été concédé. — D’après les croquis de M. Crapelet.
