MASTERPIECES FROM THE COURT OF THE SUN KING - LONDON, 2018


Louis XIV of France and Navarre (1638-1715), who reigned for an extraordinary 72 years and 110 days, was perhaps even more interested in art than in politics. Known as the ‘Sun King’, the great connoisseur and collector envisaged a unified style in the arts — classicism — that would glorify his reputation at home in France and across the courts of Europe.

"Not since the record-breaking sale of the bronze Bacchic figure by Adriaen de Vries have works of this extraordinary calibre and rarity come to the market" comments Donald Johnston, International Head of European Sculpture at Christie’s. "The offering of these works directly associated with the court of the Sun King marks a unique opportunity for international collectors and institutions, and a historic moment for Christie’s".
