Charles de La Fosse (1636-1716)

Clémentine Gustin-Gomez


This two-volume box presents the life and work of Charles de La Fosse (1636-1716), King Louis XIV’s painter. From his apprenticeship with Charles Le Brun to his Italian and Flemish influences, Volume I follows the steps in the evolution of de La Fosse’s style, marked by drawings and colours, and the aesthetic shakeup of the period, prefiguring the Rococo movement. Volume II presents a compilation of de La Fosse’s paintings and drawings, as well as his iconography.
