1. View of the château and the gardens of Versailles seen from
the Orangerie by Dumas, engraving by Coquart, 1712.
One can see that Versailles was never designed as a
“garden city”, its mineral (stone) character is striking,
with vegetation reserved,
on the West end, for only the King’s use.
A grille, (lower right), showed the passage from the city
to the royal park, (the pilasters are still standing).
