Louis XIV - Buste
The absolute authority: the torso straight, eyes looking straight and the disdainful pout, the King Louis XIV shines.
Proudly camped in a monumental sculpture by François Girardon (1699) 7 meters high, Louis XIV on horseback stands in the middle of the Place Vendome before being shot in 1792 during the Revolution. Small scale reproduced, the bust has since been resident in the Louvre. Iconic figure of royalty and art to the French, Louis XIV now rules the collection of Cire Trudon busts.
