The National Gallery of Australia will be touring the region with their block buster exhibition.
Experience a touch of power and passion of the French nobility when a presentation on the National Gallery’s 2016Versailles: Treasures from the Palace visits in November.
For the first time in history, some of the world’s greatest treasures from the Palace of Versailles are in Australia for an epic exhibition, exclusive to the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra.
More than 130 paintings, intricate tapestries, gilded furniture, monumental statues and other objects from the Royal gardens, as well as personal items from Louis XIV to Marie-Antoinette will bring life to the reign of three kings, their queens and mistresses from a fascinating and tumultuous period of French history. The grandiose collection includes the 1.5 tonne statue, Latona and her children, from the main fountain of the Palace of Versailles.
The NGA is presenting information sessions on the exhibition across part of the Southern Tablelands Arts region in November.
Please join us to discover the power and the passion of the Palace of Versailles in an exhibition that will be the greatest cultural experience this summer.
Participants will be able to purchase tickets on the day and we will have a “lucky door prize” that may include accommodation, tickets and exhibition experiences (details to be confirmed).
