Daniel Marot was a designer and engraver. He carried out many interior design commissions, as well as designing gardens. Marot began his career at the court of William and Mary in Holland where he designed interiors and gardens for royal palaces, including Zeist and Het Loo.
In England, he designed the parterre at Hampton Court in 1689 and laid out a formal garden to the south of Kensington Palace between 1689 and 1690. He also worked at Petworth in Sussex and for several other aristocratic clients.
Marot returned to Holland in 1697, where he practised as an architect. His designs continued to be published in England, influencing other craftsmen and designers, such as William Kent.
