Cire Trudon

LOUIS XIV

$270.00

Absolute authority: chin up, proud bust, and a contemptuous attitude, the Sun King rules. Immortalized in a 7-meter high monumental sculpture by François Girardon (1699), the ‘Louis XIV à cheval’ took center stage in Place Vendôme before the statue was raised to the ground, in 1792, during the French revolution. Today a resident of the Musée du Louvre, the bust still stands tall, reproduced on a smaller scale. An iconic royal figure and messenger of “l’art à la française”, Louis XIV now looks over Trudon’s collection of busts.

In collaboration with The Plaster Cast Workshop of the Rmn - Grand Palais.
