La mémoire du lieu
Under the leadership of the Grand Chancellor, Army General Jean-Louis Georgelin, the Palace of the Legion of Honor has found, in five years of restoration, its colors and its luster from the time after the fire of the Commune.
Chief architects of historical monuments, heritage architects, art historians, decorating painters, gilders, sculptors, stuccators, staffers, masons, carpenters … all these passionate professions express in this book their savoir faire and their pleasure to communicate it. Yannick Cadet, chief gardener at the Élysée, shares his wise advice with readers. Yves Minjollet, administrator of the palace, introduces us to the functioning of a large house and to the art of living in the French way. Anne de Chefdebien, curator of the museum, introduces us to the new halls of the Legion of Honor and the National Order of Merit.
