      Louis XIV, known as the Sun King, was a monarch of the House of Bourbon who reigned as King of France for 72 years & 110 days, the longest of any monarch of a major country in European history. Louis began his personal rule of France after the death of his chief minister, the Italian Cardinal Mazarin. He was an adherent of the concept of the divine right of kings, which advocates a supernatural origin of monarchical rule. This portrait by Hyacinthe Rigaud is from 1701.

      #SaturdaySwag (artworks with swagger) Portrait of Louis XIV (ca. 1701), Hyacinthe Rigaud In this portrait from Rigaud's workshop, Louis XIV's ceremonial robes, elegant stance, and haughty expression proclaim his exalted status. Despite the vast expanses of canvas he covered, Rigaud remained concerned with the particular, describing the king's costume in great detail, even down to his shoe buckles. #art #GettyMuseum #LouisXIV
