Treasures of the Court / Louis XVI of France (r. 177492) and Marie-Antoinette

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.

One of Louis XVI's first acts was to order objects from the Royal Collection to be put in public view in the Garde Meuble de la Couronne. Though he did not live to see it open, he instigated the plan to turn the Louvre into a public museum. Meanwhile his Queen acted as patron to Elisabeth Vigee-Lebrun, one of the most famed women artists of the century.
