Exquisite treasures straight from the Musée de Louvre arrive in San Francisco for an exclusive exhibit on the French monarchy at the height of its aesthetic authority. Culled from the Louvre's collections spanning Louis XIV's reign to the French Revolution, the decorative arts in Royal Treasures from the Louvre: Louis XIV to Marie-Antoinette include pieces commissioned for Versailles and ornamental gifts used to cement political alliances. Lean in especially close for the Sun King's personal collection of hard-stone vases mounted in gold and gemstones.
