The Palace of Versailles, the 17th and 18th century home of Marie Antoinette and the rest of the French Royal Family, is now a sparkling showcase of royal French style and décor. The last thing one expects to see when visiting the château is contemporary art, but that is exactly what Veilhan Versailles, an exhibit of artist Xavier Veilhan’s work at the palace, offers from September 13 - December 13, 2009. The crisp modernity of Veilhan’s pieces are sharply contrasted by their posh and extravagant surroundings, and make for an overwhelmingly successful exhibit.
