Name Inscription On Charles Le Brun Statue

Now as you can see in this image, sometimes his name is shown as all one word, yet he is most well known as Charles le Brun, rather than Lebrun, and back in Paris he became the director of the Gobelins, which was a manufacturer for furniture and tapestries for the royal palaces, and he was the originator of Louis XIV Style.

Also, the King had much admiration for him, and he received a title and income for being The first painter of the King. And from 1662 all paintings etc in the royal palaces was directed by Le Brun, yet he still executed specific decorations himself, including several for the Chateau de Versailles like the Great Hall of Mirrors and he primarily worked for King Louis XIV on different paintings and decorations, many of which are now at the Musee du Louvre.
