Monday Mural : l'hôtel des gendarmes

Trompe-l'oeil hôtel des gendarmes Versailles
We have a brand new trompe-l’œil mural!!! It is right next to the town hall, on the wall of the 'hôtel des gendarmes' (hotel as in the French meaning of residence rather than a place to stay at!) which VDP will show you tomorrow! This is another one of the Versailles School of Mural Art's creations. All Monday Murals are this way!

Nous avons un nouveau trompe-l’œil ! Il a été peint par l'Ecole d'Art Mural de Versailles sur le mur de l'hôtel des gendarmes, juste à côté de la mairie ! Toutes les fresques du lundi sont par ici !

Nicely done! I'll bet those two guys were over on this side of the pond in the late 1700s! Thank goodness!

GÉNIAL!
Comme j'aimerais avoir un tel mural dans notre rue, ce serait tellement incongru! Par contre dans ton environnement, quelle classe!
