Biography Jean (The Elder) Aubert
Jean Aubert the Elder (ca. 1680 - 13 October 1741) was a French architect, "responsible for many fine interiors but not a leader of the first rank."
He was the son of Jean-Jacques Aubert, master carpenter in the Bâtiments du Roi, and was trained in the large atelier of Jules Hardouin-Mansart. Aubert was employed in the Bâtiments du Roi as a designer from 1703 (Kimball p 131); in 1707, Hardouin-Mansart had him appointed an architecte du Roi and attempted to get him seated in the second class of the Académie royale d'architecture. As a protégé of Hardouin-Mansart, Aubert may have come into conflict with Robert de Cotte, Hardouin-Mansart's successor as premier architect though not as director at the Bâtiments du Roi.
