LE BRUN, Charles
(b. 1619, Paris, d. 1690, Paris)

The Triumph of Faith

Oil on canvas
Château, Vaux-le-Vicomte

The decoration for the newly constructed château was begun by Le Brun in 1658 and was probably completed by 1660. On the ceiling of the Hôtel Lambert in Paris, on that of the great room in the Château of Vaux-le-Vicomte, and in that of the Galeries des Glaces at Versailles Charles Le Brun rivalled the Italian decorative artists.
