Treasures of the Court / Louis XIV of France (r. 1643–1715)

Covering 500 years, 38 patrons and several continents, this course is an examination of audacious acts of patronage and how they resulted in some of the finest art collections in the world.

Louis XIV of France (r. 1643–1715)

"Le Roi Soleil" was a patron of Molière, Racine, Jean de La Fontaine, and Charles Le Brun. He founded the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture, established the Gobelins manufactory, commissioned the stunning palace of Versailles – the envy of Europe – and amassed the most comprehensive collection of precious and semi precious stones among any Western ruler since the Middle Ages.
