Beautiful portrait of Louis XIV around 1680, 1690 which can be attributed to the workshop of Louis Testelin the younger. We know of a few workshop replicas of this portrait, including one in the Louvre collections under inventory number 9347; B 2075. This replica, on deposit at the Château de Fontainebleau, smaller and reduced to the feigned oval, is embedded with other paintings in a set. (https://collections.louvre.fr/ark:/53355/cl010057702)

Henri Testelin (1616-1695)

He is the son of Gilles Testelin, painter to Louis XIII and the brother of Louis Testelin, also a painter. A student of Simon Vouet, he participated in the founding in 1648 of the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture. On this occasion, he gave as a reception piece a portrait of a young Louis XIV which can still be admired at Versailles today. He became secretary then professor at the Academy only to be excluded as a Protestant (time of the revocation of the Edict of Nantes). He exhibited at the salon of 1673 a portrait of the King and Queen. His role was decisive in the development of the official doctrine of the arts, until his exclusion in 1681. With a great sense of pageantry he painted numerous court portraits and participated in the creation of the decorations of Versailles. A large part of his work known to date is in Versailles.
