|The marriage of Japanese artist Takashi Murakami and Marie Antoinette...|
What do you think she would say, about these wonderfully whimsical pieces that are shown throughout the Chateau Versailles? I rather think that she would love them! Full of pomp, circumstance, and colour...how I wish this lovely exhibit had been there when I visited Versailles on a stormy and blustery day. I think it would wake you up from the overwhelm of riches, and bring a smile to the face. Please don't get me wrong, I adore Versailles. But room after room is so incredible, I think it would lighten it up with an air of gaiety.
Takashi Murakami's exhibit can be seen at The Chateau Versailles from September 14 to December 12, 2010.
