L'écurie en bleu

Dioscure Versailles Galerie Sculptures Moulages
VDP's last stop for the European Night of Museums last weekend was the Gallery of Sculptures and Casts located in the small king's stables and housing casts from the Louvre museum and original sculptures of the palace gardens. VDP had already shown you the place (see statues and casts here) but returned simply because she loves those stable arches and they were lit in blue for the evening! For info about the huge Dioscuri cast click here!

Dernière étape de la Nuit Européenne des Musées le weekend dernier était la galerie des sculptures et des moulages, qui se trouve dans la petite écurie du roi, où sont conservés des moulages du Louvre et des sculptures du parc du château. VDP vous avait déjà emmenés les voir (pour vous rafraîchir la mémoire, cliquez ici) mais y est retournée parce qu'elle adore ce plafond de l'écurie et qu'il se parait de bleu ! Pour plus d'infos sur l'immense Dioscure, c'est par là !

I do remember this place from a previous post. Very impressive and what a fantastic collection. So, who needs the Louvre? ;)

Those arches are spectacular, especially contrasted against the plaster. Beautiful colors and gorgeous art! Your shots are wonderful, too.

They are certainly very striking, and number one can definitely strike a pose!

Just to see the color-lit arches, without the sculptures, would have been enough. Beautiful.

This is a place I can love, for the sculptures and also for the place itself... A bit like the Bargello museum in Florence.

What a gorgeous place. I can see why you would want to go back many times.

It's hard to imagine that those were just the stables.
