Description: Allegory of Homage to a Monarch. Supplicant figures surround a throned figure, above whose head a throne is held; at right an attendant brandishes a club, while at left Victory with her shield flies over warring armies
This painting in grisaille (monochrome) shows the figure of a king, possibly Louis XIV, enthroned. Two figures stand behind, about to crown the monarch. In the foreground other figures offer gifts and kneel in homage to the king.
