Born with phocomelia, a conprivate part disorder that affected all four of her limbs, Zuly was destined for a life of disability. Along with little Zuly’s struggles, the Sanguino family had another issue to deal with – her father’s abusive nature.
Gradually, Zuly started to get really good at painting, and at age 15, she realized that her life was actually worth living.
But what really stands out is the fact that Zuly can paint exceptionally well – her methods might be unconventional, but her art is on par with any other professional artist. This autograph portrait is a triumph of Kneller's art and portrays the future King its subject as he would most wish to be seen - a great and heroic general, a champion of his cause equal in stature to the Romans whose dress his costume recalls.

Eloge de l'Art par Alain TruongArt is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known. When the chateau was built, Versailles was a country village; today, however, it is a wealthy suburb of Paris, some 20 kilometres southwest of the French capital. The earliest mention of the name of Versailles is in a document dated 1038, relating to the village of Versailles.
After the disgrace of Nicolas Fouquet in 1661, Louis confiscated Fouquet’s estate and employed the talents of Le Vau, Le Notre, and Le Brun, who all had worked on Fouquet’s grand chateau Vaux-le-Vicomte, for his building campaigns at Versailles and elsewhere. The first building campaign (1664–1668) commenced with the Plaisirs de l’Ile enchantee (Pleasures of the Enchanted Island) of 1664, a fete that was held between 7 and 13 May 1664.
The second building campaign (1669–1672) was inaugurated with the signing of the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle, which ended the War of Devolution. With the signing of the Treaty of Nijmegen in 1678, which ended the Dutch War, the third building campaign at Versailles began (1678–1684).
Soon after the defeat of the War of the League of Augsburg (1688–1697), Louis XIV undertook his last building campaign at Versailles.
During the reign of Louis XV, Versailles underwent transformation,designed by Louis Le Vau, but not on the scale that had been seen during the reign of Louis XIV. Much of Louis XVI’s contributions to Versailles were largely dictated by the unfinished projects left to him by his grandfather.
On 6 October 1789, the royal family had to leave Versailles and move to the Tuileries Palace in Paris, as a result of the Women's March on Versailles.[6] During the early years of the French Revolution, preservation of the palace was largely in the hands of the citizens of Versailles. On 21 June 1791, Louis XVI was arrested at Varennes after which the Assemblee nationale constituante accordingly declared that all possessions of the royal family had been abandoned. In 1793, Charles-Francois Delacroix deputy to the Convention and father of the painter Eugene Delacroix proposed that the metal statuary in the gardens of Versailles be confiscated and sent to the foundry to be made into cannon (Gatin, 1908). Among the items found at Versailles at this time a collection of natural curiosities that has been assembled by the sieur Fayolle during his voyages in America.
One of Dumont’s first appointments was that of Huges Lagarde (10 messidor an III (28 June 1795), a wealthy soap merchant from Marseille with strong political connections, as bibliographer of the museum. Owing largely to political vicissitudes that occurred in France during the 1790s, Versailles succumbed to further degradations. In 1797, the Museum national was reorganised and renamed Musee special de l’Ecole francaise (Dutilleux, 1887). The Grand Trianon Castle in Summer While Napoleon did not reside in the chateau, apartments were, however, arranged and decorated for the use of the empress Marie-Louise. With the Revolution of 1830 and the establishment of the July Monarchy, the status of Versailles changed. In 1833, Louis-Philippe proposed the establishment of a museum dedicated to “all the glories of France,” which included the Orleans dynasty and the Revolution of 1830 that put Louis-Philippe on the throne of France. The aile du Midi, was given over to the galerie des Balles, which necessitated the demolition of most of the apartments of the Princes of the Blood who lived in this part of the palace during the Ancien Regime. The Fifth Republic has enthusiastically promoted the museum as one of France’s foremost tourist attractions (Opperman, 2004). The 24-year-old Colombian creates beautiful, colorful paintings of flowers and landscapes that have been exhibited in various shows. The doctors had informed her mother, Guillermina, that Zuly would have to be lying down all the time for the rest of her life. Her paintings are mostly centered around the themes that she’s really passionate about – nature and the environment. The explanation of this particular baton is that William of Orange was originally the disciple and member of the court of Holy Roman Emperor, King Charles V.
William simply imitated Charles and used the same style of baton, even though he had no intention of claiming to be Constable of France.
The Constable was supposed to be the chief of the army under the king, but some of the Constables, such as du Guesclin, were quasi-independent military dictators.
You've got the wrong William - your answer refers to William the Silent who predates William III by a century.


After William the Silent the succeeding stadtholders, including William III, used the same baton, apparently out of tradition.
He was involved in the Invasion of England in 1688 and War in Europe later on, so is probably a symbol to show his military involvement.
Unlike many contemporary female artists, who concentrated on meticulously painting true-to-life flowers and insects, she ventured into more ambitious figure-based projects.
The court of Versailles was the centre of political power in France from 1682, when Louis XIV moved from Paris, until the royal family was forced to return to the capital in October 1789 after the beginning of the French Revolution. In 1575, the seigneury of Versailles was bought by Albert de Gondi, a naturalized Florentine, who invited Louis XIII on several hunting trips in the forests surrounding Versailles. The campaign involved alterations in the chateau and gardens to accommodate the 600 guests invited to the party. During this campaign, the chateau began to assume some of the appearance that it has today. Under the direction of the architect, Jules Hardouin-Mansart, the Palace of Versailles acquired much of the look that it has today. The fourth building campaign (1699–1710) concentrated almost exclusively on construction of the royal chapel designed by Hardouin-Mansart and finished by Robert de Cotte.
Towards the end of his reign, Louis XV, under the advice of Ange-Jacques Gabriel, began to remodel the courtyard facades of the palace. Shortly after his ascension, Louis XVI ordered a complete replanting of the gardens with the intention of transforming the jardins francais to an English-style garden, which had become popular during the late 18th century (Verlet, 1985). In October 1790, Louis XVI ordered the palace to be emptied of its furniture, requesting that most be sent to the Tuileries Palace. To safeguard the palace, the Assemblee nationale constituante ordered the palace of Versailles to be sealed. With the abandonment of the palace, there remained no less than 104 libraries which contained in excess of 200,000 printed volumes and manuscripts. Mirrors were assigned by the finance ministry for payment of debts of the Republic and draperies, upholstery, and fringes were confiscated and sent to the mint to recoup the gold and silver used in their manufacture. The grands appartements were used as galleries in which the morceaux de reception submitted by artists seeking admission to the Academie royale de peinture et de sculpture during the 17th and 18th centuries, the series The Life of Saint Bruno by Eustache Le Sueur and the Life of Marie de Medicis by Peter Paul Rubens were placed on display. Paintings and art work that had previously been assigned to Museum national and the Musee special de l’Ecole francaise were systematically dispersed to other locations and eventually the museum was closed.
Areas of the gardens were replanted but no significant restoration and modifications of the interiors were undertaken, despite the fact that Louis XVIII would often visit the palace and walk through the vacant rooms (Manse, 2004; Thompson, 2006).
In March 1832, the Loi de la Liste civile was promulgated, which designated Versailles as a crown dependency.
The galerie des Batailles was an epigone of the Grande galerie of the Louvre Palace and was intended to glorify French military history from the Battle of Tolbiac (traditionally dated 495) to the Battle of Wagram (5–6 July 1809). The development of private donations led to the creation of the Friends of Versailles in June 1907.
At this time, the ground floor of the aile du Nord was converted into a gallery of French history from the 17th century to the 19th century.
She has also given several motivational lectures at corporate organizations, schools and prisons.
In spite of their poverty and terrible living conditions (they lived in shacks with dirt floors), Guillermina wouldn’t give up on her daughter – she taught young Zuly to sit at first, and then walk on her own without external support. Although Zuly was making progress, things took a turn for the worse when her father committed suicide. But her mother provided her with a rock solid support system; she tried to help Zuly by educating her at home and teaching her to write and paint using her mouth.
Today, Zuly is capable of living a life as normal as any other 24-year-old – she can dress herself, put on her make up, mop her floors and of course, paint.
Zuly’s success story has become an inspiration to the world, especially to young people who are struggling to cope with depression.
Charles fought many wars in France and as a sort of propaganda measure Charles let himself out as following in the tradition of the Constables of France, such as Bernard du Guesclin. Competing with Frans Hals, Leyster chose remarkably similar themes: portraits, children playing, dancing musicians and a drinking actor.
Versailles is therefore famous not only as a building, but as a symbol of the system of absolute monarchy of the Ancien Regime.
The most important modification of the chateau was Le Vau’s envelope of Louis XIII’s hunting lodge. In addition to the Hall of Mirrors, Hardouin-Mansart designed the north and south wings and the Orangerie.
There were also some modifications in the appartement du roi, namely the construction of the Salon de l’?il de B?uf and the King’s Bedchamber. With the objective revetting the entrance of the palace with classical facades, Louis XV began a project that was continued during the reign of Louis XVI, but which did not see completion until the 20th century (Verlet, 1985). In the palace, the library and the salon des jeux in the petit appartement du roi and the decoration of the petit appartement de la reine for Marie-Antoinette are among the finest examples of the style Louis XVI (Verlet, 1945; 1985).
In response to the order, the mayor of Versailles and the municipal council met to draft a letter to Louis XVI in which they stated that if the furniture was removed, it would certainly precipitate economic ruin on the city (Gatin, 1908).[7] A deputation from Versailles met with the king on 12 October after which Louis XVI, touched by the sentiments of the residents of Versailles, rescinded the order. On 20 October 1792 a letter was read before the National Convention in which Jean-Marie Roland de la Platiere, interior minister, proposed that the furnishings of the palace and those of the residences in Versailles that had been abandoned be sold and that the palace be either sold or rented.
On 28 floreal an II (5 May 1794) the Convention decreed that the chateau and gardens of Versailles, as well as other former royal residences in the environs, would not be sold but placed under the care of the Republic for the public good (Fromegot, 1903). Fayolle, who had been nominated to the Commission des arts, became guardian of the collection and was later, in June 1794, nominated by the Convention to be the first directeur du Conservatoire du Museum national de Versailles (Fromageot, 1903). Lagarde, with his political connections and his association with Dumont, became the driving force behind Versailles as a museum at this time. Despite its designation as a museum, Versailles served as an annex to the Hotel des Invalides pursuant to the decree of 7 frimaire an VIII (28 November 1799), which commandeered part of the palace and which had wounded soldiers being housed in the petit appartement du roi (Gatin, 1908). The museum, which included the sculptures in the garden, became the finest museum of classic French art that had existed (Verlet, 1985).


Charles X chose the Tuileries Palace over Versailles and rarely visited his former home (Castelot, 2001).
Like Napoleon before him, Louis-Philippe chose to live at the Grand Trianon; however, unlike Napoleon, Louis-Philippe did have a grand design for Versailles. The museum was officially inaugurated on 10 June 1837 as part of the festivities that surrounded the marriage of the Prince royal, Ferdinand-Philippe d’Orleans with princess Helene of Mecklenburg-Schwerin and represented one of the most ambitious and costly undertakings of Louis-Philippe’s reign. While a number of the paintings displayed in the galerie des Batailles were of questionable quality, a few masterpieces, such as the Battle of Taillebourg by Eugene Delacroix, were displayed here. Zuly is an exceptional woman, mainly because she’s managed to achieve so much even though she was born without fully formed limbs. She is also an environmentalist – she goes around her neighborhood with her siblings and friends, picking up trash and keeping her community clean. Her story and her work gained worldwide attention through social media and she was invited to the United States to expand her career as an artist and motivational speaker. Phillip II, Charles' son, and Phillip III, his grandson also used exactly the same style of baton. Their sceptre was a plain wooden rod, a watchman's club, because it symbolized their role as being sort of a chief policeman of the country. She is also known for her innovative and evocative night scenes, in which she experimented with the subtle effects of light and dark. Eight years later, Louis obtained the seigneury of Versailles from the Gondi family and began to make enlargements to the chateau. The crowning achievements of Louis XV’s reign were the construction of the Opera and the Petit Trianon (Verlet, 1985).
The sale of furniture transpired at auctions held between 23 August 1793 and 30 nivose an III (19 January 1795).
Following this decree, the chateau became a repository for art work seized from churches and princely homes. The next year, Andre Dumont the people's representative, became administrator for the department of the Seine-et-Oise. Lagarde was able to assemble a team of curators including sieur Fayolle for natural history and, Louis Jean-Jacques Durameau, the painter responsible for the ceiling painting in the Opera, was appointed as curator for painting (Fromageot, 1903).
Part of the aile du Nord was converted for the Salle des Croisades, a room dedicated to famous knights of the Crusades and decorated with their names and coats of arms. In her spare time, she also helps take care of her siblings and other children in the neighborhood.

Significant to the design and construction of the grands appartements is that the rooms of both apartments are of the same configuration and dimensions – a hitherto unprecedented feature in French palace design. Equally significant was the destruction of the Escalier des Ambassadeurs (Ambassadors' Stair), the only fitting approach to the State Apartments, which Louis XV undertook to make way for apartments for his daughters.
As a result of Versailles serving as a repository for confiscated art works, collections were amassed that eventually became part of the proposed museum (Fromegot, 1903). Upon assuming his administrative duties, Dumont was struck with the deplorable state into which the palace and gardens had sunk.
Nevertheless, on 3 January 1805, Pope Pius VII, who came to France to officiate at Napoleon's coronation, visited the palace and blessed the throng of people gathered on the parterre d'eau from the balcony of the Hall of Mirrors (Mauguin, 1940–1942).
The apartments of the dauphin and the dauphine as well as those of Louis XV’s daughters on the ground floor of the corps de logis were transformed into portrait galleries.
Both the grand appartement du roi and the grand appartement de la reine formed a suite of seven enfilade rooms. These items were consigned to be part of the collection of a museum, which had been planned at the time of the sale of the palace furnishings. He quickly assumed administrative duties of the chateau and assembled a team of conservators to oversee the various collections of the museum (Fromageot, 1903).
To accommodate the displays, some of the boiseries were removed and either put into storage or sold. She became the first woman to be admitted as a master painter to the Painters' Guild, thus obtaining the right to establish her own workshop and take on pupils. To commemorate the 400th anniversary of the birth of Judith Leyster, the National Gallery of Art in Washington and the Frans Hals Museum in Haarlem, the Netherlands, have organised a small exhibition. 1632-33) with which she presents herself as an able portraitist and painter of partying groups. This portrait, together with ten of Leystera€™s finest works, amply demonstrates the ambitions and talents of this exceptional painter. However, her artistic endeavours are praised as a€?bold and intelligenta€? in Samuel Ampzinga€™s poem a€?Description and Praise of the Town of Haarlem.a€? The poem was printed in 1628, when Leyster would have been eightteen years old. Haarlem-based Ampzing suggests that she was working in Pieter de Grebber's studio at the time.
Her nonchalant pose and vivacious expression, suggesting Leyster was in a casual mood, all build upon the innovations Hals had introduced to Dutch 17th Century painting. Her joyous, playful interior scenes and loose brushwork in general also evoke images of Hals's paintings. Unlike Hals, Leyster was also interested in special lighting effects, a passion which she shared with Rembrandt and the Utrecht Caravaggists. One possible reason for Leyster's obscurity is that her independent artistic career ended in 1636, when she married fellow Haarlem artist Jan Miense Molenaer. The eleven works in the exhibition are drawn from the museum's own collection, other museums and private collections from Europe and the United States.
