Palace of Versailles – Apartments of Madame de Maintenon
This first one-man exhibition dedicated to the artist pays tribute to one of the major creators of the Palace of Versailles’ decor who worked on the Diane and Apollo Salons, at the Grand Trianon and in the Royal Chapel. It is an opportunity to showcase his main compositions, notably the Apollo Salon, currently in restoration. It presents some forty paintings and as many drawings from French and foreign collections, both public and private.

Anish Kapoor

June - October 2015
Gardens of the Palace of Versailles
After Lee Ufan in 2014, Anish Kapoor is the contemporary artist invited to Versailles in Summer 2015. Lee Ufan and Giuseppe Penone in 2013 wanted to « have a conversation » with André Le Nôtre. Anish Kapoor, though, will bring a more political perspective on power and its depiction at Versailles as it celebrates the tercentenary of Louis XIV’s death. From June to October, his work will stand in the Gardens and for the first time in a unknown though emblematic location in Versailles.
Born in Bombay in 1954, Anish Kapoor lives and works in London. His creations are often displayed in the most famous museums and international institutions. In France, his latest great exhibition was in 2011 when he moved his Leviathan into the Grand Palais for Monumenta.
