'All the arts work under him'. As Premier Peintre, or Chief Painter to the King, Charles Le Brun (1619?1690) directed the team of artists who decorated the ceilings at Versailles. All were members of the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture, which Le Brun vigorously headed. As a versatile decorative artist who also ran the crafts manufactory at Les Gobelins, Le Brun was able to design the entire decoration of a room, down to the details on a door-lock.
