The Palace of Versailles

Hennesse Decker

The Vaults of the Orangerie is very beautiful and king of mysteries. I liked how the shading and the light shines on this picture. I also like how it looks with the statue of the women and it looks like she has no arms which is weird but also very unique and beautiful!
I chose the Colonnade Grove because it looked old and unique. It looks like there is three people doing something I have no idea what they are doing. There are little depictions on the base if the statue. I also like the arched columns in the background. The Colonnade was built in 1685 by Jules Hardouin- Mansart. The Colonnade replaced a grove designed by Le Notre in 1679: the Springs Grove.
Just like many of the pictures I chose, I was attracted by the dark and mysteriousness of The Abundance Salon. On March 10, 2014 the Palace of Versailles inaugurated the Abundance Salon after several years of restoration. The Abundance Salon was completed in 1383 by the artist Rene-Antoine Houasse.
The Queen of England's bedroom at the grand trianon is shown here in rubble. Before it was in rubble it was very grand and decorated in the finest furniture and decor. In the Palace of Versailles, the Queen's Grand Apartment is and was symmetrical with the King's Grand Apartment. Unlike Louis XIV, who gave up his Grand Apartment, the Queen continued to occupy hers.
Just like the Queen, the King also had a grand apartment. Here Louis-Philippe's got up, dressed, and went about with their daily activities. The Grand Trianon was built in the northwestern part of the Domain of Versailles at the request of Louis XIV.
