Lalanne at Versailles

Marie-Antoinette's Petit Trianon has become an outdoor museum exhibiting larger-than-life Lalanne sculptures.

An original art exhibition is taking over the grounds of the Château de Versailles with sculptures by Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne peppered around the Petit Trianon. The couple's famous animal sculptures, including the now iconic sheep, are being showcased through to the 10th of October throughout the English garden and the Queen's Hamlet of the Petit Trianon, Marie-Antoinette's home away from home, her very own private hideaway gifted to her by King Louis XVI for her to escape to whenever she needed some "me time". The Lalanne at Trianon exhibition is an amusing marriage between art and a space that perfectly lends itself to the over-the-top sculptures, creating an outdoor museum where the setting and the work both complement and contrast each other equally.
