Chatelet was commissioned by Queen Marie-Antoinette to record the Petit Trianon gardens. He also recorded many other picturesque Parks in and around Paris, including Bellevue and the Folie Saint-James, Neuilly. As a topographical artist he contributed to> Abbé de Saint-Non’s Voyage pittoresque (5 vols 1781-86) and Laborde and Zurlauben’s Tableaux de la Suisse. Despite these royal and aristocratic connections he obviously thought it expedient to become a rabid Revolutionary, the hand of justice pursuing him during the counter-Revolutionary coup of Brumaire and he was sent to the guillotine on the 7 th of May 1795.
