Location History
A masterpiece, a prototype for the gallery itself and a showcase for the Renaissance in France, the Francis I Gallery in the Château de Fontainebleau (post-1528) served as a model for future generations of artists. It pre-dates the Apollo Gallery in the Louvre (post-1661) and the Hall of Mirrors in Versailles (post-1678).

All of the castle is classified in the UNESCO world heritage.
