Le Grand Condé. Le rival du Roi-Soleil?

September 5, 2016 - January 2, 2017

Major Exhibition

Jeu de Paume, Domaine de Chantilly

This fall, the Domaine de Chantilly will stage an unprecedented show on Prince Louis II de Bourbon-Condé. Known as the “Grand Condé,” this celebrated military mastermind led his country to numerous victories, instigated a rebellion against his own cousin King Louis XIV, and devoted the latter part of his life to embellishing the Château de Chantilly and its gardens. For the first time ever, a major exhibition is dedicated to the life and legend of this emblematic figure of 17th-century France and it is only fitting that Chantilly – his favorite residence – be the venue, just steps from the Museum that bears his name.
