Versailles revival 1867-1937 - Exhibition catalogue
At the end of the 19th century, the Palace of Versailles made a spectacular comeback. At the same time as it is once again becoming a national symbol and the scene of political events, the nostalgia for its former splendour is inspiring literature, the arts and fashion.
The splendour of Versailles, the poetry of its gardens, the ghosts of the Sun King and Marie Antoinette are among the dreams of the Belle Époque and then the Roaring Twenties. It is also the moment when the palace begins the vast project of its restoration and refurnishing, triggering passionate debates that are still relevant today.
Exhibition "Versailles Revival 1867-1937" from 19 November 2019 to 15 March 2020 at the Château de Versailles.
