Even without its rich political history, the palace and chateau of Versailles earn our attention. Long acclaimed as a masterpiece of architecture, interior design, and landscaping, this royal enclave has attracted millions of visitors, but most of them have never seen the numerous palace apartments and outbuildings that remain inaccessible to the public because of their state of preservation. Photographer Francis Hammond, however, received carte blanche access to these treasures to document their priceless treasures. From the Queen's theater to Marie Antoinette's boudoir; this full-scale Rizzoli pictorial presents sides of splendor that we have never before seen.
