Dedicated to the Franco-American friendship and the preservation of beauty, culture and the arts.

It is an irony that a place whose existence owes so much to poetry and artistry is now almost indefinable by either. Versailles is an opus that transcends the vocabulary, perhaps even the imagination of its creators. It exists as an unparalleled and final statement that is likely never to be repeated.
