Portrait Of Philip V, King Of Spain

Hyacinthe Rigaud (Perpignan 1659 - Paris 1743) Circle
Portrait of Philip V, King of Spain (Versailles 1683 - Madrid 1746)

Oil on canvas
72 x 59 cm - framed 87 x 74 cm.

The painting examined here, depicting King Philip V of Spain (Perpignan 1659 - Paris 1743), is to be placed in the circle of the painter Hyacinthe Rigaud (Perpignan 1659 - Paris 1743), one of the most significant portrait painters of his time and a great interpreter of the French school.

This is a work of excellent pictorial quality: note the rendering of the facial features and the sharpness of the contours emphasised by the light. The face is characterised by chiaroscuro passages that verisimilarly reproduce light and its effects, rendered with great skill.

Philip V wears a black satin costume with a sword at his side, he wears the stiff white Spanish collar and at the same time wears the blue sash of the Order of the Holy Spirit and the collar of the Habsburg Order of the Golden Fleece: this bringing together of the two main orders of France and Spain announced the possibility of a union between the two crowns.

In Spanish costume, this effigy is nevertheless fully in line with the French tradition of ceremonial portraiture, also testifying to the renewal that Rigaud had brought about, particularly through the relationship between the character and the splendour of the decoration.

The work is inspired, reworked in a reduced format to make it suitable for a private clientele, by the large painting that Rigaud made for the sovereign around 1700, today conserved in the Louvre (, reproduced by the same workshop in numerous other versions.

The account books of Rigaud's workshop show, from 1701 to 1708, around 21 replicas of this subject, made by the master himself or often with the help of collaborators such as Charles Viennot (1674-1706) and Adrien Leprieur (1671-1732), today in numerous proven and public collections; these include the painting in Madrid (Palacio Real) and the one in the Uffizi in Florence (imm1: ) both versions that resemble the canvas we propose in terms of format and dimensions.

The work is presented in a good state of conservation, complemented by a lacquered and gilded wooden frame.
