Salon Doré

Added on by Natalie Grasso.

My grad school orientation yesterday included a brief tour of the Corcoran's collections - I could have spent the whole afternoon in the Salon Doré, pictured above. The room was constructed as part of a wedding gift for a young princess in 18th century Paris (any further detail escapes me - obviously I was a little distracted by all that gilt paneling!). Isn't it gorgeous?
