Catalogue Note

The model for this bust, dating circa 1643-1644, was formerly attributed to Antoine Coysevox (1640-1720). The future monarch wearing a cuirass was five or six years old at the time (Versailles Castle, inv. no. MV 2171). A terracotta of the same model is in the Magnin Museum, in Dijon, and a bronze cast in the National Museum of Warsaw, formerly attributed to Jean Varin or to the founder Charles Crozatier who once owned the bust of Versailles (No. Rz.D.72 MNW).
