But with new must-see places!!
We know that during this festive season, you will only have time for Christmas shopping… but if you could save a little time to discover these two exhibitions, we promise you won’t regret it!
KARL LAGARFELD, A VISUAL JOURNEY explores the wide-ranging motifs, approaches and media that define Karl Lagerfeld’s astute and intensely personal interpretation of photography. The exhibition reveals Lagerfeld’s many areas of interest including architecture, landscapes, Paris by night, portraits and self-portraits, fashion photography, and abstractions (an interest in the graphic characterizes many of his photos, regardless of their subject). Two grand photo installations -Daphnis and Chloe and Le Voyage d’Ulysse – complete this comprehensive display of Lagerfeld’s photographic oeuvre.
THE KING IS DEAD
The exhibition – the first on the subject –looks back on the details of the death, autopsy and funeral of Louis XIV, which strangely are little known, and to situate them in the funeral context of European sovereigns from the Renaissance period to the Enlightenment. It also discusses the survival – often paradoxical – of this ritual from the French Revolution to the contemporary era. The exhibition brings together works of art and historical documents of major importance from the largest French and foreign collections, including ceremonial portraits, funeral statues and effigies, gravestones, the manuscript for the account of the autopsy of the king, coins from the Saint-Denis Treasury, gold medals, emblems and ornaments, and furniture of funeral liturgy. Some of the pieces on display have never been exhibited in public.Where? Château de Versailles, place d’armes, 78000 Versailles
