Photographer's Note

This estate was once a royal residence, serving as the palace residence of the House of Orange-Nassau until 1962. It is located near Apeldoorn. Built in 1684, it remained the summer residence of the Dutch Royal Family for more than 300 years. The main palace building underwent extensive renovations between 1976 and 1982.

The incredible gardens were painstakingly reconstructed beginning in 1970 to appear as they were originally designed. The primary feature of gardens of this period was the strict symmetry, elaborate geometric shapes radiating outward, and a Classical theme, where Venus features prominently. Other deities from the Greco-Roman pantheon also appear, particularly those associated with gardens and nature.

After the death of Queen Wilhelmina in 1962 the palace reverted to the State and has been designated as a state museum open to the public since 1984, following renovations.
