This book displays the royal residence in all its riches and diversity. Its riches are the paintings, sculptures, woodwork, furniture and objets d'art of the highest artistic quality, all produced in the studios of the greatest creators of the 17th and 18th centuries, those who made Versailles and ensured its predominance.
Its diversity lies instead in its settings. With its three palaces, two gardens and park, the estate of Versailles is an entire world. From the majesty of the king's Grand Apartment to the pastoral charm of Marie Antoinette's Trianon, from the broad vistas of the gardens to the secrecy of the groves, the royal residence of bygone days offers a profusion of beauty but also of contrasts and surprises that are bound up with its history and its creators.
Bilingual Exhibition catalogue The Palace of Versailles through 100 Masterpieces, presented at the Musée des Beaux-arts d’Arras, Ancienne Abbaye Saint-Waast, September 2014 - March 2016.
