A comprehensive tour of the magnificent Chateau de Chantilly, its superlative art collection, important stables, and beautiful gardens.

The Domaine de Chantilly is an exceptional treasure of French culture and heritage, rebuilt after the Revolution by Henri d'Orleans, duc d'Aumale-son of King Louis-Philippe-as a home and museum for his unrivalled collection of furniture, decorative arts, books, and paintings. These constitute the Conde Museum's extensive galleries-second only to the Louvre in France-with masterpieces including paintings by Raphael, Clouet, Poussin, and Ingres; the world famous French Gothic illuminated manuscript Les Tres Riches Heures du Duc de Berry; furniture; porcelains; drawings; and early photographs.

Chantilly's elegant private apartments, kept precisely as they were during the duc d'Aumale's lifetime, are beautifully preserved examples of the Louis Philippe style unique to France; its recently restored French garden was designed by celebrated landscape architect Andre Le Notre; and the still-functioning Great Stables are the largest and most opulent in Europe.

This slipcased volume offers a behind-the-scenes visit to one of France's most complete and beautiful stately homes and its world-class art collection that is carefully conserved today by the Institut de France.
