"20 Years of Passion, Château du Champ de Bataille"

Chers Amis de L’Ecole du Bon Goût,  Bonjour! There is a spectacular new virtual “Bible of Bon Goût” just out in print.   “Jacques Garcia, Twenty Years of Passion, Château du Champ de Bataille”. This 400 page book is not only fabulously illustrated with glorious photography, but also a very interesting read chronicling M. Garcia’s twenty year quest to bring his completely audacious dream into three dimensional reality!

M. Garcia’s taste is truly beyond reproach in his countless architectural, landscape and interior decors resulting from his extensive personal knowledge of the various periods employed, joined with his keen eye for the balance of complex compositions and his somewhat daring but always successful color palette.

His enormous collection of superb furniture and fine art, much of which is of royal provenance, is mind boggling to say the very least! The entire ensemble of acres of manicured formal gardens and water features, the unusual architectural composition of the château itself,  plus the collection contained therein, compares well to, if not excels, most major chateaux in France! 

This “encyclopedia” is available from Amazon for about $75 delivered and can be had in the original French text or a very good English translation.  So give yourself a real treat that will keep on giving you images of the best Bon Goût for years to come!! See below some photos from the book to give you just a small taste of this exceptional work!
