Golderman’s highly praised Versailles Portfolio, commissioned by the Helicon Foundation in 1981, featured a series of ten images of the famous palace and gardens. Golderman, invited to create the portfolio by Albert Fuller, created the photographs to illustrate symposia on Early Music in the Court of Versailles. Fuller co-founded the prestigious Aston Magna Music Festival, America’s oldest annual festival devoted to music performed on period instruments. A series of books based on the themes of the Aston Magna Academies is being published. The Cibachrome prints were printed in a small edition of four, of which only individual images are available today.
