Marcel-Noël Lambert (1847-1928) was an eminent French architect, eventually rising to the most prestigious posts in France as Chief Architect of Versailles and of Historic Monuments. Early in his career he carried out important works on the Acropolis of Athens, leading a campaign of excavations in the Erechtheion and a restoration of the west side of the Parthenon. These are some of the beautiful drawings he made as part of the operation.
