LE CH耇EAU DE LA REINE
Si Madame de Pompadour, qui souhaitait d閟ennuyer le roi , fut l抜nstigatrice de ce petit ch鈚eau que Gabriel 閐ifia dans les ann閑s 1760, c抏st le souvenir de Marie-Antoinette qui plane sur l掗difice. En 1774, Louis XVI offrit le domaine de Trianon la Reine qui put y mener une vie 閘oign閑 trop 閘oign閑 pour certains de la Cour.

The ch鈚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.
