The Tomb of Francis I and Claude de France at teh Royla Abbey of St. Denis, Paris.
It was executed by Philibert de L’Orme and Pierre Bontemps between 1548 and 1559.
Philibet de L’Orme succeeded Sebastiano Serlio as architect to the King of France. The monumental frame for the tomb was modelled on the Arch of Septimus Severus -ehich featured inSebastiano Serlio’s Quattro Libri.
The order used here, however, is ionic rather than Corinthian.
