The apartment of the crown princess Marie Leszczynska has recently been reopening at the Palace of Versailles. This is the perfect opportunity for the palace to stage an exhibition all about this Queen of France so that we can learn a little more about her. The queen’s personality and taste in art and design are clear in the way she designed this apartment in the palace and decorated it with furniture, artworks and other items. We can marvel at the quality of the pieces, from the portraits on the wall to the fine porcelain in the cabinets. There are 50 pieces in total that have been collected to showcase the queens’ choices and tastes.
The show, called The taste of Marie Leszczynska opened at the Palace of Versailles in mid-April. There are hopes to then complete the crown prince’s apartment in 2020. This is a great opportunity for history enthusiasts and art lovers alike.
