Stirling Castle Palace Project | An Artistic Alliance

Nous avons le plaisir de partager avec vous une video, crée par Historic Scotland, qui montre un aperçu du chantier au Château de Stirling, en Ecosse, où Michel a travaillé sur un projet de restoration sur plus de 5 mois.  Vous avez aussi la possibilité de lire un article, également par Historic Scotland, qui a été traduit pour un site français.

We are extremely pleased to present you the film produced by Historic Scotland on the painting work done inside the palace at Stirling Castle.

Michel was invited by John Nevin of Edinburgh to create the designs as well as paint the trompe-l'oeil inside the royal chambers at the Palace at Stirling Castle.

Taking part in refurbishing the Renaissance Palace at Stirling Castle was not only a wonderful experience for him - he felt very honored to have taken part in such a colossal project - it was also a great opportunity for Michel to discover the Scottish people, its culture and its beautiful country.  His wife Kyoko and he fell in love with Scotland, which now occupies a very special place in their hearts.
