Versailles - a Garden in four Seasons

€ 49,50
The palace and gardens of Versailles represented both Louis XIV’s celebration of himself and a balanced integration of art and nature. As a monument to the Sun King, the solar symbolism of Apollo reigns over both architecture and ornament at Versailles, yet French classicism dominates the gardens, imposing a strict geometrical order on the forest, shaping the flowerbeds and boxwood, and brightening the depths with fountains and statuary. Jacques Dubois presents Versailles through the cycle of the seasons and the shifting intensities of their light.
