The Louvre, 1655. Catherine Beauvais, known as Cateau la borgnesse, walks her incongruous deformity through the corridors of the most beautiful palace in the world. Her presence is as annoying as the trust that Anne of Austria shows her.
Catherine had a unique knowledge of plants, stomachs and clysters. This science, combined with an uncommon intelligence and sensitivity, allowed her to make her way to the posterior of Her Majesty the Queen, a glutton who stuffs herself daily with sausages, chops and boiled bread.
How to make a place for yourself at the Court, this cenacle that swears by the beauty of forms, when you are a creature from a modest background, used to inspiring disgust and detestation?
A dive into the realm of appearances, where the monsters are not those we think.
