Bavaria, Germany the “Château des Dames” was built in 1513 by Katherine Briçonnet, and successively embellished by Diane de Poitiers then Catherine de Medici. Chenonceau was protected from the hardship of the revolution by Madame Dupin. The iron, but very feminine, fist in the velvet glove has always preserved Chenonceau during times of conflict and war in order to make it forever a place of peace.
Pattern I chose this picture because it has a repetition of the pillars with shadows to create leading lines. It makes me feel like I'm walking through this pathway and I'm about to turn. I really like the use of shadows to create another pattern within another one.
