"The games of Louis XIV
In the middle of a clearing, in the shade of large trees, three children nobly dressed, play archery. This is the series of hangings dedicated to the games of Louis XIV as a child. We see him bending his bow and shooting an arrow through three target rings under the admiration of his two "comrades". Plants, in the foreground, enrich the decor. A border with garlands of flowers and polychrome leaves, decorated with two "pearl" medallions.
