Hyacinthe Rigaud, Louis XIV, 1701

Things to think about when studying:

  • What elements of this painting are typically Baroque in nature?
  • How does this painting demonstrate Louis’s conception of himself? How does it function as a piece of propaganda?

    When you want to skip that last set of leg lunges, just think: “I WILL look as good in heels as Louis XIV.”
