Versailles to Murakami: Get Out!

28 Oct

French noble Prince Sixte-Henri de Bourbon-Parme wants to initiate a court order to halt Takashi Murakami’s art exhibit in the Palace of Versailles for besmirching the “supreme good French taste” with “frankly grotesque” art. The descendent of Louis XIV says it’s “a provocation” and wants to restore “respect of the château and of [Louis XIV’s] ancestors.” Oh yeah, because there was nothing gaudy and disgusting about the Sun King, Louis XIV.
