|Object history||: commissioned by Louis XIV
English: The Journal written by Paul Fréart de Chantelou, which records Bernini's visit to Paris in 1665, describes in detail the gestation of his marble bust of Louis XIV, which took forty days to create. Berninin's design of the Palais du Louvre failed to please Louis XIV. Nevertheless the king showered Bernini with honours and commissioned his portrait bust from him. This is one of the few portraits for which Louis XIV agreed to pose: he allowed thirteen sittings.
Français: Paul Fréart de Chantelou rapporte dans son journal la visite du Bernin à Paris en 1665 et la gestation de ce buste en marbre de Louis XIV qui dura quarante jours. Le projet du Bernin pour la restructuration du Louvre ne fut pas retenu par Louis XIV, cependant le roi traita le Bernin avec honneurs et lui commanda un portrait en buste. Il s'agit d'un des rares portraits pour lesquels Louis XIV ait accepté de poser : il accorda treize séances de pose.
