LE CH嬸EAU DE LA REINE
Si Madame de Pompadour, qui souhaitait d廥ennuyer le roi , fut linstigatrice de ce petit ch漮eau que Gabriel 嶮ifia dans les ann嶪s 1760, cest le souvenir de Marie-Antoinette qui plane sur l嶮ifice. En 1774, Louis XVI offrit le domaine de Trianon la Reine qui put y mener une vie 幨oign嶪 trop 幨oign嶪 pour certains de la Cour.

The ch漮eau of the Petit Trianon is a celebrated example of the transition from the Rococo style of the earlier part of the 18th century, to the more sober and refined, Neoclassical style of the 1760s and onward. Essentially an exercise on a cube, the Petit Trianon attracts interest by virtue of its four facades, each thoughtfully designed according to that part of the estate it would face. The Corinthian order predominates, with two detached and two semi-detached pillars on the side of the formal French garden, and pilasters facing both the courtyard and the area once occupied by Louis XV's greenhouses.
