Versailles, chateau of the Bourbons, is known intimately by one who has lived through the 17th and 18th centuries.
Summer after summer the author paced its long art galleries with one whose acquaintance with the old regime was so intimate he could beckon the noted personages from their frames.
Her artist-comrade wanders off in search of fellow magicians, Mignard and Watteau, Nattier and Boucher, who gave the lovely ladies their earthly immortality.
