Sculptures Versailles

Petit Trianon

Sculptures Versailles is a wonderful ressource dedicated to the outdoor decoration of the Chateau de Versailles. It provides technical descriptions of the sculptures (author, size, kind of stone, theme, date...) and pictures about every detail of each building.
The author is BĂ©atrix Saule, curator at Versailles.
It's in French, but there are a lot of pictures and inedited views to enjoy.
