Mansard or Mansart, (JULES HARDOUIN,) a cele-
brated architect, born in Paris in 1645, was a son of
Jules Hardouin, a painter. His mother was a sister of
F. Mansard, noticed above. He studied the art with
this uncle, and assumed his name. Having obtained
the favour of Louis XIV., he designed the most im-
portant architectural works of his reign. He had a rare
opportunity to display his genius in the chateau or royal
palace of Versailles, which, though imposing in dimen-
sions and rich in ornaments, fails to satisfy the require-
ments f good taste. He built the Hotel des Inyalides,
in the grand dome of which he attempted to rival Sir
Christopher Wren, the Chateau de Marly, the Place
Vendome, and other public works. In 1699 he was
chosen superintendent of buildings, arts, and manufac-
lures. Died in 1708.

sole him," says Lamartine, "but Beranger, whose heart
loved in Manuel the antique stamp of the premature

was more remarkable for character than eloquence ; he
preferred action to speech," etc.
