Ancy-le-Franc (constructed 1544-50) is a château in Burgundy commissioned by the French nobleman Antoine de Clermont-Tonnerre from the Italian architect Sebastiano Serlio. The print shows a perspectival view of the whole estate and the surrounding landscape. The central axis dividing the parterres and running through the château is a fundamental principle of the French formal garden. A road alongside cultivated fields and pasture leads across the bridge to a hamlet dominated by a spire in the distance.
