From 1680 to Louis XIV's death in 1715, painting knows a real aesthetic revolution. The “Grand Goût” embodied by Nicolas Poussin, Pierre Mignard and Charles Le Brun, synonymous with austerity and morality, turns, in less than a generation, into sensual paintings intended to eye's pleasure only. The many reasons of this change of taste during this key period hadn't yet been broached.
This book by Clémentine Gustin Gomez analyses the style of the greatest painters of Louis XIV's reign. It emphasizes the decisive influence of Titien and Veronese, Rubens, Albani, Poussin and Charles Le Brun. The 270 works represented allow understanding the exceptional creativity of pictorial art, from Louis XIV's set-up in Versailles in the 1670s to the Regency.
