The Royal Vegetable Garden sketchbook

Le Potager du Roi

At the foot of the statue of Louis XIV in the Royal Vegetable Garden in Versailles, RBB has placed her artist’s material where gardeners have put their tools.
She sketches ephemeral colours of the morning’s harvest also noting the daily  activities and atmosphere of the kitchen garden which the  gardeners share with her during the season.
Her sketchbook is the source for her book The Royal Vegetable Garden of Versailles, seasons drawings  (Le Potager du Roi, dessins de saisons à Versailles) published by Glenat : a 3 year work sketchbook among 22 acres produced by the gardeners of the Versaille’s Vegetable Garden.
