Which portrait of Louis XIV is your favorite? I just released a video discussing the life of the French King Louis XIV through the many portraits that have been painted of him. You can find the link to the video in my bio. Louis XIV (1638-1715) was the French king for 72 years, that's still three more years than Elizabeth II currently. During his life more than 300 portraits were painted of him, and in the 7-min video I discuss about 30 of them. From left to right, the ones shown here were painted by Hyacinthe Rigaud, Charles Le Brun, Henri Testelin, and Nicolas-René Jollain le Vieux. If you are interested, the video will discuss his intriguing life and show more portraits of the Sun King. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #FineArts #ArtoftheDay #LouisXIV #SunKing #LouistheGreat #France #King #Ruler #Monarch #ArtVideo #ArtDiscussion #ArtTalk
