Work submitted for admission to the Académie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture and presented on January 28, 1679. This is one of the few works of its kind to be a portrait; Charles Le Brun (161990) was the king's chief painter, who was Chancellor of the Académie Royale at the time.
A full-sized model of the bust is in the Wallace Collection, London.
