Lalanne Sculpture Exhibit at the Trianon
Just learned of an interesting event at Versailles. From the Versailles official website:
"From 19 June to 10 October 2021, the Palace of Versailles will have the honour of hosting “The Lalanne at Trianon” in partnership with Galerie Mitterrand. This exhibition will present works by sculptors Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne along a visit route that leads from the gardens of the Petit Trianon to the Queen's Hamlet."
It requires a ticket to the Trianon complex - 12 euros - but it's pretty easy to get as you don't need to book online ahead of time like the chateau visits. We've toured the Grand and Petite Trianon palaces on our last visit but the Queens Hamlet was under some reconstruction so this looks like a good use for our time. The photos look interesting - sheep, a donkey, weird chickens, etc.
Warning to those who've never been to the Waldorf-Astoria - it's 0.8 miles from the hotel to the Trianon complex. You can do a lot of walking in the 2,000 acres of Versailles.
