Ladies of the Trianon

The exhibition

From 3 July to 14 October 2012, the palace of Versailles presents the exhibition Ladies of the Trianon at the Grand Trianon.

The show features a group of portraits recalling famous and not-so-famous women who lived at the Trianon.

In addition to rulers from Queen Maria-Theresa of Austria to Empress Eugénie of France, portraits of women in the royal or imperial family – mothers, sisters, daughters and granddaughters – are on display in the gallery. Beside them, you can see paintings of women whose lives were interwoven with power – princesses and royal favourites – and of lesser-known figures: ladies of the royal court and women in the service of queens and empresses.

A procession of three centuries of women in French history streams past the eyes of visitors, who can observe changing tastes in fashion and portraiture in famous works by Gobert, Rigaud, Nattier, Gérard, Gros and Winterhalter.


Jérémie Benoît, Head Curator at the palace of Versailles, is the show's commissioner.
