Course detail: OSH018 - The World of Versailles

Works of art tell fascinating stories about 18th-century France-the century of Versailles, the Enlightenment and the French Revolution. We'll learn about the people who shaped the history of this very important period, including the kings of France and their loves, Americans Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson-both of whom lived in France-and many others. We'll explore fashion, economics, philosophy, ballet, interior design, landscape gardening and much more, and we'll discuss how they are related and how they play a part in our lives today.
