The collections amassed by the royal mistresses were made possible by their acknowledged position, which conferred almost unlimited spending power. Through lecture and lavish slide illustration, the lives of influential mistresses such as Madame du Pompadour and Madame du Barry are discussed within the social and political surroundings of court life.
