ABSTRACT:French architects Charles Percier (1764-1838) and Pierre François Léonard Fontaine (1762-1853) are widely credited with the development of the neo-classical Empire style. The Percier and Fontaine Collection is comprised of original architectural drawings, prints, and a manuscript, purchased as part of Fontaine's library in 1927 by the Burnham Library at The Art Institute of Chicago.
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Graphite, ink, and watercolor drawings, engravings, lithographs, manuscripts and printed papers.
ORIGINATION: Fontaine, Pierre François Léonard, 1762-1853
Fontaine, Pierre François Louis, 1798-1863
ACQUISITION INFORMATION:The Percier and Fontaine Collection was originally part of the Burnham Library's purchase of Pierre François Léonard Fontaine's library in 1927. The book of bound drawings was purchased at auction in 1999.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH:
Charles Percier (1764-1838) and Pierre François Léonard Fontaine (1762-1853) first met as architecture students in Paris. They studied the art and architecture of classical antiquity together in the French Academy in Rome during the 1780s and returned to Paris at the beginning of the Revolution. Appointed by Napoleon architectes du gouvernement in 1801, their architecture and interior design work can be found in many of the monuments of Napoleonic Paris, including renovations to the Louvre and Tuilleries Palaces, the Rue de Rivoli, and Place Vendôme, and in such grand estates as Malmaison and Fontainebleau, near Paris. The design of the Arc du Carousel, located between the Tuileries and Louvre Palaces in Paris, is also considered among their masterpieces. In addition to their built work, Percier and Fontaine authored numerous books on architecture and design throughout their partnership, becoming the chief exponents of the French Empire style of decorative arts. Fontaine alone held official posts after Napoleon's fall and after 1815 Percier withdrew from active practice, instead teaching at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts until his death. Fontaine continued to work for government agencies until his retirement in 1848.

Pierre François Louis Fontaine (1798-1863), Fontaine's nephew, was a student of architecture under Percier at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris beginning in 1816. Fontaine won the Second Grand Prix de Rome in 1822 and traveled throughout Italy from 1823 to 1825 studying the monuments of Classical and Renaissance Italy. Upon his return to France, he made a career in the administration of the Palais Royaux, serving as architect for the palaces of Saint-Germain and Saint-Cloud and the stables du Roule and those on the Rue Montaigne in Paris. Additionally, Fontaine designed private commissions, including buildings for the Ecorcheville family and for the chateaux at Hazeville and Théméricourt, and thermal bathhouses at Fontainebleau and Versailles.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE:
The Percier and Fontaine Collection contains 129 original architectural drawings-most attributed to Fontaine's nephew Pierre François Louis Fontaine-and eighty-eight prints, some with manuscript annotations and sketches, of projects or monuments primarily in France and Italy. Additionally, there are two bound manuscripts. These materials were part of Pierre François Léonard Fontaine's library, purchased by the Ryerson and Burnham Libraries in 1927. Some materials are believed to have been Fontaine's and some were added later by his nephew, Pierre François Louis Fontaine.

ORGANIZATION AND ARRANGEMENT:
SERIES I: DRAWINGS. Matted drawings are arranged alphabetically by location and then chronologically and/or alphabetically; folloing that group, drawings of unidentified locations are arranged alphabetically by project name. Many of the attributed dates for the matted drawings were derived from watermarks. A bound volume of sixty-two drawings made by the studio of Percier is located at the end of the series; only the last drawing is attributed to Percier.

SERIES II: PRINTS. Matted prints are arranged alphabetically by location; prints of unidentified locations are arranged alphabetically by project name.

SERIES III: WRITINGS. One leather-bound volume documenting architectural activity in Paris (c.1809-1815) with journal entries and illustrations of the buildings and monuments; the bound volume was sent to Alexander I by Pierre Fontaine (uncle) and collected and bound in Saint Petersburg, Russia. A second bound manuscript, prepared by Pierre François Léonard Fontaine, for Napoleon I, contains a detailed inventory of built public structures in Paris. This series also includes an article on Pierre Fontaine in Journal des Débats.

PROCESSING INFORMATION:

CUSTODIAL HISTORY:
The Percier and Fontaine Collection originally came to the Burnham Library with the purchase of Pierre François Léonard Fontaine's library in April 1927. The library had been in the possession of the Fontaine family since Pierre François Léonard Fontaine's death and Pierre François Louis Fontaine's materials were added to the collection. The library was purchased from the Fontaine family in Paris on the recommendation of A.D. Millar. Millar was working for the London office of the Chicago architecture firm Graham, Anderson, Probst, and White at the time and went to Paris to examine the material on behalf of the Burnham Library. The Burnham Library collected the funds to purchase the Fontaine Library through public subscription. The prints and drawings in the this collection were transferred to the Department of Architecture upon its founding in 1981 and transferred into the Ryerson and Burnham Archives in May 2000. The manuscript was transferred from the Ryerson and Burnham Libraries to the Archives in Fall 2001.

ALTERNATE FORM AVAILABLE:
Selected items have copy negatives or digital files, as noted by the notation "AIC neg." Copies of these items may be ordered through the Ryerson and Burnham Archives.
