The theme is the exciting relationship between Madame de Pompadour and Voltaire. Marquise de Pompadour (1721 – 1764), the mistress of King Louis XV, was also called the Queen of the Rococo with an exquisitely refined and elegant style of the 18th century. She was the patroness of the arts: from porcelain manufacturing to painting, theater and court music, she influenced important developments. Colors of fabrics, ragout, fireplace, mirror, table, sofa, chair, bed, ribbon bows, cans, fans, cases and even toothpicks are named after her!
The most beautiful letters from Madame de Pompadour and texts from satirical works by Voltaire are combined with piano compositions by French composers from the 18th century and by impressionists.
