Fascinating photos and very informative
Absolutely fantastic overview of Versailles history. The lecturer provided everything from practical info about where the food and water came from to explanations of the political/mythological symbolism of parts of the gardens. There was so much info, I think I'll have to re-watch to catch it all!
Marie was very warm and welcoming to the attendees. She is very knowledgeable and it was a very interesting webinar. Her talk made me want to visit the entirety of the gardens of Versailles.
Wonderful session on the gardens of Versailles, well balanced presentation of photos and facts. History components were fascinating, styles of gardens, royal court traditions and inspirations. Marie is a fabulous guide. Highly recommend!
As usual mme Marie was succinct ,and pithy in her presentation .The histilorical background and ancestry of Louis quatotoze gave an added dimension of his theatrical presentations in the garden .Another facet that I had not discovered was the perspective and the disappearing dimensions I had not been aware of before Marie’s lecture .I loved the explanations of the fountains and aqueducts .The grilling of Thetu had not been mentioned before in any of my visits to Versailles .Years ago I prepared for the Paris Marathon at Versailles .In 1999 when I returned for another preparation I was devastated to see the loss of the beautiful trees .I am happy to see and hear many are being replanted .Merci ,Madame for a beautiful historically accurate lecture .You imbue your audience with an appreciation of your love of art history .Sincerely June OReilly DDs
