Versailles and Antiquity presents the relationship between the palace and Greek and Roman mythology and history, bringing together over 200 works of art.

Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, beauty and pleasure
The antique sculpture Diana of Versailles was installed by Louis XIV in the Hall of Mirrors. It was then moved to the Louvre during the French Revolution and is back at the Palace for the first time since 1797.
This dramatic sculpture was originally placed at the top of a fountain in the gardens of the Palace. It depicts Latona with her children Diane and Apollo imploring help from their father Jupiter.
