The arrival of spring, hope and new life - the grass is green
and a newly betrothed couple are exchanging rings in the
foreground, accompanied by friends and family. The chateau is
another one of the Duc's, that of Dourdan.
The May jaunt, a pageant celebrating the "joli mois de Mai"
in which one had to wear green garments known as livrée de
mai. The riders are young noblemen and women, with princes
and princesses being visible. In the background is a chateau
thought to be the Palais de la Cité in Paris.
Harvest time - the peasants are mowing the meadow in
unison, with the Hotel de Nesle, the Duc's Parisian
residence, in the background. The building on the right
is the Chapelle Royale, which is unchanged to this day.
