1 Diploma Lecture Series 2012 Absolutism to enlightenment: European art and culture The court at Versailles: space, ritual and the courtly body Mark de Vitis 29 February / 1 March 2012 Lecture summary: The Palace of Versailles was one of the most significant building projects of the seventeenth century. More than simply a private royal residence, Versailles increasingly became a site of political meaning over the course of the reign of King Louis XIV of France ( ). The palace was expanded and developed in a program which sought to shape aristocratic identity through newly devised architectural features, spatial arrangements and embellishments. I aim to present Versailles as an active force in re-forming the French political landscape at a time of intense political change. By examining Versailles spaces and the way that bodies operated within them, we can fully access the concerns of the age of Louis XIV. Slide list: 1. Louis Le Vau and Jules Hardouin Mansart, Palace of Versailles, Versailles, France. a. Patte d oie (approach to the east goose foot) b. Cour d Armes (Court of Arms) c. Cour de Marbre (Marble court) d.
