Andre´-Charles Boulle (11 November 1642 – 28 February 1732) was the French cabinetmaker considered to be the preeminent artist in the field of marquetry, even called the most remarkable of all French cabinetmakers. His fame in marquetry led to his name being given to the fashion he perfected of inlaying brass and tortoiseshell, known as Boulle. Boulle was granted lodgings in the galleries of the Louvre, which King Henri IV had set apart for the use of his most favored artists employed by the crown. Boulle received the post of Premier E´be´niste du Roi. Boulle carried out numerous royal commissions. Foreign princes and the great nobles, government ministers and financiers of his own country crowded to him with commissions. Boulle's creations included commodes, bureaux, armoires, pedestals, clock cases and lighting-fixtures, richly mounted with gilt bronze that he modeled himself.
