Versailles in Canberra

I didn’t try to take any decent pictures today. We finally visited the National Gallery’s special exhibition from the Palace of Versailles in France, an exhibition that has been running for months – and finishes soon – but we missed because of travel.

I have NEVER, not in 3.5 decades of visiting the NGA, seen a queue like the one for this exhibition. It literally stretched from one end of the building to the other. We were touching the exit door!

So, here are two quick snapshots. There were so many people there I didn’t even try to take a clear shot. The chair in the second picture belonged to Madame de Pompadour, and the desk belonged to the Dauphin.
