♣ The Style in Art;

- Baroque or Louis XIII:

- Néo-Renaissance:

- Gothic:

- Brick and Stone:
We must stay until the late seventeenth century for Augustin-Charles d'Avila, in his Lectures, published in 1691, clearly states that the brick masonry is apparent in two ways. The first is to build the piers (that is to say, the vertical arrays) and projections (such as banners, headers, lines) of stone and brick panels. Jacques-François Blondel, Cours in 1750, specifies the place of the stone with Double Beds, around the perimeter of doors and windows, baseboards and cornices. The second way is in contrast to the projections of brick and covered with plaster panels. The unit of the wall is no longer a collection of bricks but not squared stone rubble known, whose appearance requires a coarse plaster, a mixture of sand and lime that mimics the color of the stone. Throughout the history of style, there are two ways to turn or mingle.
