5.0 out of 5 stars THE GARDENS OF VERSAILLE AND WORK OF ANDRE LE NOTRE, 5 Mar 2013

This review is from: The Sun King's Garden: Louis XIV, Andre Le Notre and the Creation of the Gardens of Versailles (Hardcover)
Interesting book - was prompted my a recent documentary series of French Gardens by Monty Dom, he did a very interesting programme about the work of Andre Le Notre and the Gardens of Versaille. This book gives an interesting insight into the garden design and history of this superb creation. The earlier designs at Vau-le-Vicompte for Nicolas Fouquet by Andre Le Notre led Louis XIV (France's self styled Sun King) to create the Gardens of Versaille. Fouquet was imprisoned by Louis XIV and he confiscated much of the garden ornaments at Vau-le-Vicompte which led to Le Notre's appointment to design the Gardens of Versaille. Highly recommended book.

This review is from: The Sun King's Garden: Louis XIV, Andre Le Notre and the Creation of the Gardens of Versailles (Hardcover)
A delicious documentary text that we can read as we would read a novel. Fast paced and griping, makes one want to go back in time, it was a very cool book to read because I had been to Versailles in the summer and the memory was very vivid. Loved it.
