Versailles: Treasures from the Palace
For the first time in history, a collection of over 130 sumptuous treasures from the Palace of Versailles are coming to Australia and exclusively to the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra. Prepare yourself for an epic exhibition that embodies the opulence, luxury and beauty of a period central to French history, bringing life to the reign of three kings, their queens and mistresses. From the iconic gardens to the rich paintings, from sumptuous rooms to the golden details, from Louis XIV to Marie Antoinette, this exhibition is the greatest cultural experience this summer.
Highlights include magnificent works, such as the marble bust of Louis XIV, the monumental Gobelins tapestries, the Dauphin’s fine writing desk, the original sculpture of Latona from the centre of Versailles’ main fountain and Marie-Antoinette’s porcelain.
