Aristocrat's anger at Versailles Murakami 'manga' show

A French aristocrat descended from Louis XIV is seeking a court order to stop a Japanese artist exhibiting his work at the Palace of Versailles.

Work by Takashi Murakami, who blends Japanese classical art with manga-style modernity, is on show until December.

But Prince Sixte-Henri de Bourbon-Parme believes Murakami's brightly coloured work dishonours the memory of his ancestors.

The prince and fellow protesters say Murakami "denatures" French culture.

Hahahaha! Suck it up. Frenchy!

He's mixed up

There used to be all sort of gaily decorated events and balls at the palace back when France had kings and queens. That was one of the complaints against them, which resulted in the comment, "Let them eat cake" toward the hoi polloi.
