Les jardins de Versailles : une découverte interdisciplinaire ?

Abstract : This thesis focuses on the French gardens of Versailles, Louis XIV birth until his death. These gardens are the work of André Le Nôtre, gardener to the king, to international fame. Inspired by the gardens of Vaux-le-Vicomte, the gardens of Versailles are divided between open spaces and enclosed spaces, but also lights and shadows reinforced this perspective so famous. This place is full of symbolic service to the exaltation of the Sun King, both by the presence of Apollo, sculptors and water by the domestication of nature. This makes it a continuation of the course which walks, pleasures and festivities prominently. French gardens of Versailles are also support study in cycle 3 on various subjects such as history and art history. This discovery enables interdisciplinary French gardens to shine to both Versailles but also in elementary school classes.
