400th Anniversary of Versailles's Gardener
on 14 December 2013
André Le Nôtre helmed one of the most spectacular gardening projects known to man; those surrounding the Château of Versailles. To celebrate his life—400 years later—the palace is restoring several fountains and hosting an exhibition through February 2014, drawing attention to his great influence on location and elsewhere. Le Nôtre also developed both the Champs-Élysées and the Tuileries Garden. Needless to say, his work redefined architecture and is still resonant today.
