Artist's Description

The Palais-Royal, originally called the Palais-Cardinal, is a palace located in the 1st arrondissement of Paris. The screened entrance court faces the Place du Palais-Royal, opposite the Louvre. The larger inner courtyard, the Cour d’Honneur, has since 1986 contained Daniel Buren’s site-specific art piece Les Deux Plateaux, known as Les Colonnes de Buren.

Originally called the Palais-Cardinal, the palace was the personal residence of Cardinal Richelieu. The architect Jacques Lemercier began his design in 1629;construction commenced in 1633 and was completed in 1639. Upon Richelieu’s death in 1642 the palace became the property of the King and acquired the new name Palais-Royal. It was later a childhood home of Louis XI.

There are now whimsical stripped columns of all sizes in the courtyard which entice many people to enjoy the outside of the gorgeous Palais.
