The Chateau of Versailles remains forever the emblematic symbol of Louis XIV, whose reign lasted for almost half a century. It is recognized as one of the most beautiful works of art of the 17th century France. The most symbolic of the rooms is no doubt the Hall of Mirrors. During the next century, under the reign of Louis XV, the Chapel and the Opera were completed. The Chateau ceased to function as the seat of official power in 1789 with the French Revolution. This program presents a tour of the many rooms and works of art inside of France's national treasure. The Orangery at the Chateau of Versailles was designed by Jules Hardouin-Mansart in the 17th century.

Serge Lance was born in Paris 1922. The whole of his life has been dominated by music. He wrote his first work at the age of four. Lancen studied the piano with Marguerite Long and composition with Tony Aubin at the conservatory of his native town. In 1949 he won a prize for his Etudes, and some time later he was awarded the Prix de Rome! His work as a composer is very varied and includes symphonic music, choral works, ballet music and several concertos. Versailles, composed and premiered in 1980, is a 4-part piece in which Serge Lancen seems to paint a musical portrait of the wellknown castle of Versailles.

Sweeping away the old court and its traditions, not only did Marie Antoinette insist on living as she wished, but also imposed her personal taste on Versailles. Here's her bedroom that reflects her opulent taste.

http://www.vernissage.tv | Last year, American artist Jeff Koons presented his works at the Chateau de Versailles near Paris, France.

Episode #080: From his studio in New York City, Jeff Koons discusses his 2008 exhibition at the Château de Versailles in France. Koons explores the power and sensuality of the grounds at Versailles, citing Louis Quatorze (Louis XIV) as an inspriation for his 1992 piece, "Puppy," a large floral sculpture made out of 60,000 large flowers. Jeff Koons plucks images and objects from popular culture, framing questions about taste and pleasure. His contextual sleight-of-hand, which transforms banal items into sumptuous icons, takes on a psychological dimension through dramatic shifts in scale, spectacularly engineered surfaces, and subliminal allegories of animals, humans, and anthropomorphized objects. The subject of art history is a constant undercurrent, whether Koons elevates kitsch to the...
