'Woman looking up at Ino and Melicertes, Palace Gardens, Versailles.'
The Palace Gardens of Versailles contain 372 sculptures. You can find "Ino and Melicertes" near the Apollo Fountain. It dates from 1712 and is sculpted by Philippe Granier.
The lady enjoying the sculpture is dressed in white because she participated in the White Picnic ("pique-nique en blanc"), which is organized on Bastille Day, the 14th of July. That day thousands of people come together with their picnic baskets and have a festive meal on the banks of the Grand Canal. After the meal, many spread out over the gardens. Photo Paul Smit.
