Monday Mural: Lully

Lully mural Versailles
Waiting for Bastille Day fireworks on 13 July. As you know, a great many of Versailles' electrical enclosures have been decorated by the Versailles Mural Art School. VDP has shown you a few before, here, here and there. Oh and a particularly cute one here. But VDP digresses. This, above, was one of the first ones to appear and represents the great composer Jean-Baptiste Lully who worked for king Louis XIV... All Monday Murals are this way!

C'était l'attente du feu d'artifice du 13 juillet dernier. Comme vous le savez, l'Ecole d'Art Mural de Versailles décore les armoires électriques de la ville. VDP vous en a montré plusieurs, ici, ici et . Ah et la plus mignonne (de l'avis de VDP) était par ici. Bref, VDP digresse. Ci-dessus, sauf erreur, a été l'une des premières et représente, bien sûr, le compositeur Jean-Baptiste Lully. Toutes les Fresques du Lundi sont par ici !

Belle idée Lully va bien à Versailles , il y a déjà le collège Rameau !

Michelle said...

Very nice!

RedPat said...

It is wonderful, Ciel! So suitable for Versailles!

Bob Crowe said...

It's unfortunate that we don't hear more Lully, Rameau, etc., these days. J.P. looks quite elegant in this portrait.

Would that all electrical enclosures, everywhere, have such wonderful artwork applied.

A nice place to sit and wait too!

3D on 2D very clever. I like it.

VP said...

A very good idea and a nice work!

Revrunner said...

Much better than the utterly utilitarian units around most of our cities.

Why not take advantage of dressing up something drab and ugly. Win for the artist and win for the masses.

I think it's a great idea and wish more communities would do the same here in Canada!

Lully beobachtet ganz schön streng die Beiden, was wird er wohl denken...?

Sharon Anck said...

That is certainly beautifully done.

Halcyon said...

A great way to make those dull boxes look nicer. :)

Marleen said...

Very artistic!

Geoff Wilkinson said...

What a brilliant idea, well done Versailles City Council of of course VDP for taking a lovely picture...

I love this stuff. Contemporary art, trompe l'oeil, and an homage to your history. So rich. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

Vraiment classe!

Classic mural Ciel, beautifully painted in cameo colour and style.

William Kendall said...

This ends up looking more like a sculpted piece than a mural!

We are seeing utility boxes decorated more and more, which is a development I kind of like. But, I have not yet seen one as sophisticated and classical as this one.
