Baroque   •   Charles Le Brun @ Wikipedia

Charles Le Brun is one of the most influential French artists. The painter, sculptor, architect and ornamental artist was the spiritual father and the driving force behind the style epoch we now refer to as Louis XIV. The enormous breadth of his creative work, he was not only a painter and sculptor, but also interior decorator, plasterer and designer for carpets, wallpaper and tapestries, allowed him to put his stamp on all the art of this era. His style influenced the subsequent generations of courtly artists and served as a benchmark and idealized counterpart to the erupting Rococo until the 18th century.

Le Bruns career began early, at the age of 13, when a drawing made by him Ludwig III. on horseback aroused the attention of then Chancellor Ségnier. Thereafter, the talent of the young Steinmetz apprentice was systematically promoted. Born in Paris in 1619, Le Bruns was already court painter in 1638 and received his first commission from Cardinal Richelieu. His courtly benefactors enabled the artist to spend some time in Italy, where he completed his studies and studied under Nicolas Poussin in Rome. During this time he also devoted himself to the work of Carracci, Raphael and Renis, who strongly influenced his later work. For example, one of the most famous works of Le Brun, the entrance of Alexander in Babylon , which can be visited today in the Louvre. © Meisterdrucke
