The Art of festivals at the Valois court - Exhibition catalogue
During the Renaissance, the sumptuous feasts of the Valois kings left their mark on the spirits with their magnificence. They were held in the palaces of the Louvre, the Tuileries, Chenonceau and Fontainebleau.
This book offers a behind-the-scenes look at the Renaissance festivals in France, the drawings of the whimsical costumes that dressed the court, the prize-winning gifts offered at the wedding, the table naves and the ephemeral or permanent decorations that presided over their outfits. It invites you to relive the dizziness of the ambassadors and guests. Luxurious souvenirs in gold or paper, the objects gathered here constitute the catalogue of an ideal exhibition on an art that combines all the others: the art of celebration.
