Versailles Stories: Masters Of Time
Masters Of Time
Season 1  |  Episode 5  |  SBS  |  December 17, 2009

Frederic Didier, head architect of Versailles, supervises a team of restorers, sculptors, stone masons, carvers, gardeners, and other highly skilled staff who fight a constant battle against time and decay. The painting collection alone comprises 6400 paintings, which means 6400 frames are in need of constant attention. Then there is the furniture, the sculptures, the decorative elements, the mural paintings and so on: a work in progress of Herculean proportions.
