Charles Le Brun is the greatest French artist of the late 17th century. A prodigy who came to prominence during his adolescence, he became chief orchestrator of the arts under Louis XIV’s reign. If he remains famous for the decoration of the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles, his long and rich career left us with extremely diverse works, reflecting the variety of his gifts.
Paintings, sculptures, tapestries, engravings, but also drawings, sketches and designs for furniture and large decorative projects: 235 works pay tribute to the eclectic talent of Le Brun. Some are from private collections and have never been exhibited so far.
Others are recent revelations, such as the Sacrifice of Polyxena, discovered in Paris in 2012 in Coco Chanel’s suite at the Ritz during renovations of the hotel.
