"Painter of the King", René-Antoine Houasse (1645-1710) certainly was. Spotted, after his apprenticeship with Nicolas de Plattemontagne, by the First Painter of the King, Charles Le Brun, he intervened on all the major projects of the reign of Louis XIV: at the Palace of Versailles - Grand Appartement du roi, Ambassadors' staircase, Galerie des Glaces -, the Trianon and the Tuileries Palace. He also made many tapestry cartoons for the Gobelins manufactory.
This monograph studies the life and career of Houasse. It also includes a catalogue of his paintings, tapestry cartoons and drawings, and several documented appendices.
