Abstract:

"Versailles is one of the most photographed places in the world, but only four people have the privilege of being the palace's official photographers. They have uniquely unfettered access to the secrets that lie within, outside and beneath this enormous domain where they spend their days--and sometimes their nights. Here, for the first time, they open their personal albums to offer a wealth of impressions and responses. Two hundred and fifty previously unpublished photographs reveal a plethora of outstanding artworks, the private apartments of Louis XIV, Marie-Antoinette and Madame de Pompadour, magnificent galleries, the delightful Orangerie and mysterious passages and hidden attics, all accompanied by texts that present a lively introduction to daily life at the château and its momentous history"--From publisher description.
