Printing the Grand Manner: Charles Le Brun and Monumental Prints in the Age of Louis XIV
May 18 through October 17, 2010.

The exhibition explores a little-known facet of late 17th-century reproductive engravings. On view at the Getty Research Institute, the exhibition examines the prints' rich vocabulary and illuminates the context in which they were made between the mid-1660s and the mid-1680s. While it focuses on the relationship between Charles Le Brun (French, 1619-90) and the printmakers who reproduced his compositions, the exhibition also interprets the prints and their inscriptions in light of Le Bruns ambitions and struggles as a court painter, designer, and print publisher in the highly competitive atmosphere surrounding Louis XIV.
