Lost to Revolution

  • Chris Yvez relates the sad story of the downfall of the house of his ancestors, the Bourbon family, who occupied the French throne for centuries. Chris, who you already know from his shows on Imperial Chinese Art, The Empress Dowager Cixi, and Relics of the Passion of Christ, as well as Collectors' Catacombs, is a direct descendant of the Bourbon & Valois families, and he brings to this show 5 paintings formerly in the Palace of Versailles, as well as a large fragment from one of Marie Antoinette's gowns. The story of the lives of Louis XVI and Antoinette is heart rending, and I doubt that you will ever have heard this side of the story. Please join us at the usual time on Sunday evening: 5PM PST, 6PM MST, 7PM CST, 8PM EST. Gary
