An organised visit to see the newly-restored battle scenes of the Louis XIII and his cardinal-duc, 19 March 2011

The local association, Richelieu 21 , has organised a coach trip to see the six canvases of this series of twelve, originally from the galerie of the Château de Richelieu (now long gone), that are to be exhibited at the municipal art museums of Tours and Orléans. The day out takes place on Saturday 19 March 2011.  Six more paintings are to be exhibited in the cité idéale de Richelieu itself - no coach trip required!
