Charles Percier (1764-1838) met his life-long partner, Pierre Fontaine (1762-1853), in the Paris atelier of the architect and educator, Antoine-François Peyre. They were early noted for their skills as draughtsmen, both winning prizes in the 1780s in the prestigious competitions at the Académie Royale d'Architecture. Here they boldly broke the Academy rules by including romantic landscape effects with poetic cloudy skies. After winning the Grand Prix in 1786, Percier studied at the Académie de France à Rome where he joined Fontaine.
