Above is a painting ‘The signing of the Treaty of Versailles in the Hall of Mirrors’ done by the critically-acclaimed William Orpen. 
28th June 1919. Politicians, diplomats and their best advisers from around the world, gathered at the Palace of Versailles, in the Hall of Mirrors, to discuss the aftermath of chaos, turmoil as well as the social and economic downfall of World War One. Decisions had to be carefully thought out, from every angle, in order to restore the world to a path of peace and security. In the months to follow, treaties would be signed as an attempt to do that. The disputes faced by each political leader were deep and seemed impenetrable. So many arguments about what each treaty should say. “Are we making a good peace? Are we?” Inquired Harold Nicholson (A British adviser) in his diary. So did every politician in their thoughts. Only time would tell.
