Story Behind the Painting

This painting is of the famous Hall of Mirrors at Versailles (Paris, France). It is titled Galerie des Glaces. I added in some Louis XVI figures as when I visited in 2013 really appreciated how well maintained the palace was and how very little was altered so I felt transported myself and just marveled at the Baroque detail. If you do visit, be sure to have quiche and coffee at the cafe shortly after the Hall of Mirrors portion of the tour.
