Le deuil

Exposition le roi est mort château de Versailles
A whole room of the 'the king is dead' exhibition is devoted to the fascinating official and private mourning etiquette and how it evolved over the centuries. VDP really liked this museography a lot! Sorry for not having visited your blogs yesterday, catch up today!

Toute une pièce de l'expo "le roi est mort" est consacrée au deuil, officiel ou privé, à son étiquette et à son évolution au fil du temps. VDP a adoré la muséographie !

Can't you just imagine the sudden demand there would have been for black clothing?

You really have captured this whole exhibition so well Ciel. The lighting wasn't easy. Why does this black and white diamond floor remind me of my kitchen floor :)

This looks a lot like a chess game to me! LOL

That's an interesting museum display. Your first image looks three dimensional, but your second is obviously two dimensions. The display has dramatic lighting. Well done.

I guess there is some advantage in such traditions. More, probably, for the elites than the regular folks. But it's nice that their memory has been preserved and that you were able to show some of them to us.

I have really been enjoying this series. It touches on some uncomfortable topics.
