Two aesthetic universes inspired this carré. In renaissance Italy the painter Andrea Mantegna designed the plan of his house inscribing a circle within a ‚carré‘ like a square. In 18th century France, the chateau de Raray saw the surroundings of its courtyard adorned with a strange procession of sculpted animals, which later became the filmset of ‚Beauty and the Beast‘.
