About This Item: 
A comprehensive tour of the magnificent Château de Chantilly, its superlative art collection, important stables, and beautiful gardens. The Domaine de Chantilly is an exceptional treasure of French culture and heritage, rebuilt after the Revolution by Henri d'Orléans, the Duke of Aumale--the last prince of France--whose collection of books and fine art was unrivaled. The Condé Museum's extensive art galleries are second only to the Louvre in France, with masterpieces that include paintings by Raphael, Clouet, Poussin, and Ingres, precious books and manuscripts including The Très Riches Heures of Jean, Duke of Berry, spectacular furniture and porcelains, and early photographs. The château's French garden designed by celebrated landscape architect André Le Nôtre in the seventeenth century was his favorite creation, and the eighteenth-century Great Stables are the largest and most opulent in Europe. This handsome slipcased volume offers unprecedented access to the extraordinary beauty and history of the estate with its exquisite furnished princely suites--including the singerie boudoirs with mural paintings by Christophe Huet--ceremonial interiors, decorative arts, and old master paintings.
