The Health of the King


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Five gentlemen, grouped around a table, toast the King. One page is replenishing a wine glass while another stands in attendance. Set in a Renaissance chimney piece in the right background is a marble bust of Henri IV of France. The wall at the left is covered with crimson fabric decorated with fleurs-de-lys and emblazoned with the arms of France and Navarre. Discernible on the lace-covered table is a Chinese pheasant that is being served in its skin. A large copper wine cooler dominates the right foreground.
