Travels With A Curator: “Château de Chantilly”

In this week’s episode of “Travels with a Curator,” Deputy Director and Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator Xavier F. Salomon takes viewers on a journey through the grand halls of the Château de Chantilly, one of his favorite places in France. Like the Frick, Chantilly began as an opulent residence and was once the home of the Grand Condé, a cousin of Louis XIV. Today, the château houses one of the best collections of European paintings in France as well as the world-famous illuminated manuscript “Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry.” Watch closely for a guest appearance by Jadwiga, Xavier’s kitten.

The Château de Chantilly is a historic French château located in the town of Chantilly, Oise, about 50 kilometres north of Paris.
