Presentation

Discover the new exhibition at the Palace of Versailles showcasing animals!
After the Hyacinthe Rigaud exhibition or the sun portrait, the Palace of Versailles presents the Animals of the King exhibition from October 12, 2021 to February 13, 2022. Around 300 works will bring to life an impressive bestiary made up of the thousands of animals that inhabit it the palace under the Ancien Régime. The public will also be able to rediscover the high places of animal life at the Court. The exhibition will also highlight the resistance of the great minds of the Court to the Cartesian vision reducing animals to machines, a theory which denied them intelligence and sensitivity.
