Versailles Revival explores the significant contribution of the first curator of the Palace of Versailles, Pierre de Nolhac, to the 'revival' of the former royal residence, and surveys the ways in which the palace, and its past, inspired artists, poets, composers and photographers, in the early part of the 20th century. 

Four watercolours from the Royal Collection are on display, all showing events held in honor of Queen Victoria's visit to the Palace, at the invitation of Napoleon III, in 1855. The works will be on display until March 2020.
