This large-format book presents the gardens of the Palace of Versailles as you have never seen them before. A solitary stroll in the steps of Louis XIV and André Le Nôtre through the four seasons: extraordinary light, trees and groves full of history, some of the most famous perspectives and works of art along each walk – sculpture masterpieces, bubbling fountains, etc.
A trip through time, a year in pictures showing how the gardens are regenerated as they have been for over three centuries.
