Daniel Marot was a Huguenot who settled in the Netherlands after French Protestants were proscribed under the edict of Nantes (October 1685). His first documented work is from 1686.

He was a key figure in transmitting le style Louis XIV to the Netherlands, and was later influential in England during the period of William and Mary.

He was the son of Jean Marot: see now Marot (J.) Plans and elevations of the Louvre {1879} NGV [PR].
