Hyacinthe Rigaud, French Painter

Post  Susan Abernethy on Wed Aug 14, 2013 1:40 am

Hyacinthe Rigaud was an award winning painter during the reign of King Louis XIV and beyond. He painted many portraits of people of different ranks in society and because of him we know what these people looked like. His style is noted for impressive poses and grand presentations.

Oh, so he painted the famous coronation portrait of Louis XIV. I think that started something of a fad - Louis XV, XVI, and even Napoleon aped the design of that portrait. Amazing skill, iconic work!

Yes Bunnies! He started the trend with the Louis XIV portrait. It's one of my favorites because of the turn of the legs. Rigaud also painted the Louis XV coronation portrait.
