The Great and Hidden Splendours of the Sun King's Palace


Versailles as you’ve never seen it… A lavish journey through the Palace’s breathtaking rooms and grounds by its official photographers


ISBN: 9780500519868 Category:

Thomas Garnier, Christian Milet, Didier Sauinier


Versailles is one of the most photographed places in the world, but only four people have the privilege of being the Palace’s official photographers. They have uniquely unfettered access to the secrets that lie within, outside and beneath this enormous domain where they spend their days – and sometimes their nights.

Now, for the first time, they open their personal albums to offer a wealth of impressions and responses. Two hundred and fifty previously unpublished photographs reveal a plethora of outstanding artworks, the private apartments of Louis XIV, Marie- Antoinette and Madame de Pompadour, magnificent galleries, the delightful Orangerie and more, all accompanied by texts that provide a lively introduction to daily life at the Château and its momentous history.

This is a monumental volume on a scale that matches the grandeur of the world- renowned Palace it celebrates.
