"The Palace of Versailles in 100 works of art" at the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Arras.
This exhibition, created in partnership between the public establishment of the Palace of Versailles,
the Conseil regional Nord-Pas-de-Calais and the town of Arras, reveals several of the most emblematic works of the Versailles collections. With a ‘trompe-l’oeil’ staging, which invites visitors to intimately engage with the aesthetic and artistic world of the palace, this exhibition is all about reviving the luxury and artistic excellence of the Grand Siècle. As well as highlighting major works of art, the setting endeavours to relocate them in their context, envisaging life at court and its various atmospheres: the ambiance set against marble, bronze, gold and silver, wood panelling and marquetry, water and fountains, wood and forests, flowers and fields, parties and fires.
Until 28th March
