13 September - 13 December 2009

Exhibition, fron 13 September to 13 December 2009
In the main courtyard, the Royal courtyard, the Gabriel and the Queen’s staircases and the gardens of the Château de Versailles

How can works of art fit into an architectural complex and a landscape as symbolic as Versailles? As a good artist who cares about perspectives and systems of constructing representations, Xavier Veilhan has taken the liberty of staging a new painting in Louis XIV’s perfect setting, a fluid, dynamic trajectory focusing on relationships between scales, balances and observation points.
