Madame du Barry's Library

Madame du Barry's library is very small and is completely without any decoration at the ceiling. The glass cabinets that contains the books were very stylish and modern when the maîtresse-en-titre had them installed; they were elaborately decorated with gilded gold. The couch is placed in a small alcove with mirrors covering each side. This was the very room that Madame du Barry had her pet parrot in that beautiful cage described in artefacts. The fireplace is made of so-called cherry marble named so after its reddish colour.
The right side is dominated by a large column leading to the small windows letting in natural light to the small room.
