So that's Louis the Sun King. Huh. Looks kind of chubby to me-- kind of in need of a chin tuck. But I suppose that being well-fed in his time was a sign of high society. Interesting.

My family was in France last summer for six weeks with my two boys aged 7 and 10. We spent three days and two nights at Versailles and your picture fills my head with lavish memories. At night after the crowds had dispersed, I remember sitting on the grand staircase down from the fountain garden and watching my seven year old son run laps around the Grand Canal. Bliss.

I went to Versailles on a school trip, and my 16-year-old self was amazed at the shortness of the beds and enthralled with the unfinished portait by David of Bonaparte. I especially liked Le petit Trianon.
