September 2015 marks the 300 year anniversary of the death of the King Louis XIV of France, the longest reigning monarch in history. Celebrate the great artistic production that took place during the reign of this famous French royal with The Wallace Collection's autumn season.
Louis XIV's time on the throne had much political weight and he was lavished with many treasures, including direct contact with the vanguard artists of the moment.
Highlight events during the autumn season include a discussion about The King Dances, the latest work from the Director of the Royal Birmingham Ballet, David Bintley. There will also be a masked Friday Lates event (2 Oct) inspired by 17th century decadence.
