is well known rhal Bernini made three ma1or
works for Louis XlV: the design for rebuilding rhc
Louvre, which brought him co Pam m chc summer
of l665 • Figs. 177. 180 ; the lite-size p<>nr.ut bw.r
of the kmg executed while he was in Pan:. ( Figs.
178, r8t ; Phi.le X): and the monumental equcsman
scacue execured afrcr his rcrum to Rome ( Figs. 179,
182: Pl:.nc XI). Each of these works h:i.s been studied separ:irely. buc rhey have hardly been considered
Logerher or appreoacc:d for what chcy really m-.
equ1va1enc expressions tn different media of the concept held by one man of genius who was an :misc
of another who was a mon:irch. 1 I want co emphasize ar the ourset thac although I shall focus mainly
on the visual ideas through which Lhis basic conccpr
was expressed. it was not purely abstract or chcoreticaL On the contrary, the deca.iled diary of Bernini's
stay m Pans kepr by his escort, Paul Frean de
Chantdou. bears witness ro the warm pcrsonaJ relationship cstablished becween chc amsc and the king,
based on mutual respect and admiracion.2
The reasons for the lack of a unitarian vision
of rhe three works are complex. Each project had
its own dramatic and uiumatcly abortive hisrory.
The design for the Louvre became a scapegoat in
t
1665
the rislng r1dl' of French cultural natit>na!ism. Jnd
rhe building ne\•cr rose above che foundarions. The
bust, which nt'Vcr received the pcde~tal Bernini
incended for 1t, was installed at Versadl~ rather
than rhe Louvre. The eque:.rnan monumenr mer
w1ch violent disapproval - including rhi> king's when ir reached Paris long after Bernini's death;
ir roo was ~em ro Versailles. where 1t was finally
m:.talled m chr garden, havmg been convened from
oi portr.ur inco an illusrr.mon of a rccondire episode
from Roman hLStory. Above all, I suspeet char the
d11Tcrenr media have obscured che common ground
of the three works. Wirhm cbe rmd1uon:il convcncions of arr ir is praccicaUy inconceivable chat archiceccural ::ind figural works mighr convey rhe same
ideas in chc same way-not just indin:ctly through
abstracc symbolism buL directly through mimec1c
rcprcsencanon. I believe chac rh1s was prcascly what
Bernini had in mind. This inrencion e.xplains rhe
paradox1caJ metaphor he expressed durmg his v1s1t
ro Paris: "buildings ac:c rhc portraits of che soul ol·
kings;" 3 and ic permits us co see his works for Louis
XJV as reAccrions of :i single. coherent imagr chat
was among his mosr original creanons.

Bernini's Image qf the Sun King

The King, the Sun, and the Earth
The primary componenr of Bernini's image of the
king was the p.reemincnr metaphor of Louis's reign,
the sun - in conformity with the millennial tradiriori of thli' orims augHsti, "the rising of the august
one," idenrifying the ruler with the sun. 4 T he richness, frequency, and programmatic nature of the
theme are illustrated in an engraving published in
Claude Frans:ois Menestrier's History of the King of
1689 ( Fig. 183); the emblems linking Louis with Lhc
sun in the period from his birth to his majority in
t65i are gathered in a design thar itself forms a
composite solar emblem. 5 In 1662 Louis adopred as
his official device the sun as a face seen high above a
spherical earth, with the famous mocto Nee .Pluribus
bnpar~'not unequal co several ( worlds)," thar is,
capable of illuminating several ochers (Fig. 184).6
Bernini had had ample experience with such solar
imagery long before his visir to Paris. T he sun had
als<) been an emblem of the Barberini pope. Urban
VID. one of Bernini's greatest patrons, and Bernini
was intimaccly fam iliar wi th <In Lmport:im document
of this association, a frescoed vault in the Barberini
palace in R.ome, executed by Andrea Sacchi around
t630 (Fig. 185).7 Divine Wisdom, with an emblem
of che sun at her breast, appears enthroned in the
heavens above the sphere of che earth. Bernini himself had exploited the image in the allegorical sculpture of Time discovering Truch, which he began
roward the end of the 164o's in response to slanderous arr.acks then being made on his reputation ( Fig.
186).8 Truth is a splendid nude whom a figure o(
Farher Time, flying above. was to discover, literally
as well as figuratively, by lifring a swarh of drapery.
The figure of Time was never executed, but che
whole concl!ic drew on rhe traditional Lhemc of
Time rescuing his daughLer, who had been secreted
by her great enemy Envy in a dark cavern. Time was
shown raising up T rurh from the earth, represented
as a craggy peak below (Fig. 187). T his tradition is
alluded co by the rocky base on which Bernini's
T rurh sits, wirh one foot resting on the globe and
an emblem of rJ1e sun in her hand. The joy of the
occ~tsion is illusmmd by the radiant smile on Truth's
face, the physiognomical equivalcnr of the sun's own
benefic~nL spltndor.

Bernini's image of tbc Sun Kiug
Tbt Palau Portrait
Roman ant1qu1rv offered chrct notable instances of
solar imagery in palaces. The imperial palace par
exullenu, built m1t1ally by Augustus on the Palnr:ine
hill, included :i Temple ol" Apollo crowned by J
resplendent gilded sculpwrc
the Chariot of rhe
Sun (er. r igs. 208, 209). Solar imagery was :l.SSOCl ated with the building itself in r.he revolving rncubr
dimng haJI of Nero's Domus Aurea and in the hc:lVmly, htgh-columned dwelling of Apollo described m
Ovid's ,\.1.ttamorphoscs. Following these sources, Louis
Le Vau and Charles Le Brun had introduced the
metaphor at Vaux-le-Vicomte, che great residence of
Louis's finance m1msccr Fouquet, in the oval salon
and in che design for ics vaulc decoration ( Fig. 188 ).
Bernini admired Le Brun's composit1on when ic was
~h o wn to him in Paris exccpt rhac, the design being
oval. "if che palace of the sun represented in ir had
the same (orm. or indeed were rou11d. it might have
been beitcr suited to th e palace and to the sun irself."9
The allusion had, in rum, been introduced mco
designs for the new Louvre proposed by Louis Le
Vau and his brother Fram;o1s shortly before Bernini
came co Pam. Lows included an oval salon as tht

centerpiece of che ease wing ( Fig. i89), and Fran~ois
included a relief showing Apollo in his chariot, as
well as the Nu Plurib14s lmpar motto, in the decorations of the central pavilion (Fig. 190). Bernini must
have been aware of Louis Le Vau's Louvre projecr,
which was sent to Rome a.~ an example for several
fralian architects who were to comment and submit
designs of rheir own. The two projects Bernini sent
to Paris before his visit develop rhe oval motif into
powerful curves rhat dominate the designs ( Figs.
191. 192); significantly, he emphasized the SunApollo allusion in the architectural form of the
projects, while evidently excluding any such imagery
from d1e decorations of the facades. IO
Bernini's distinctive approach to the problem
began to emerge in a series of dramatic developments ac the outset of his visit. From his first
inspection of the Louvre, on June 3, 1665, the day
following his arrival in Paris, he concluded that
what had already been builr-a considerable portion of the palace - was i.nadequare. 11 A[ their first

In sum, Bernini developed a whole new mode
of architectural expression at che Louvre co convey
Louis XIV's adapracion of the cradirional oriens
augitsti theme co himself as the Sun King. Bernini's
project created a summa of the major ancient Roman
"solar" palaces, merging chem wirh a ~uasi-religwus
notion of ethical achievement expressed through
archirecrure. These rradil'ions. in cum, he associated
with che equally venerable metaphor of the ruler as
Hercules reaching the summit of the Mountain of
Virrue. The visual, s1ructuraJ, and meraphoricaJ
basis for these rclarionships was Bemini's beloved

che underlying motivation for his sudden willingness

Giu lio himself had adopred the pose of the Greek
hero from that of j1Jl.ius Caesar in Tiuan's series
of the Twelve Roman Emperors (Fig. 217).42 In
Bernini's sculpture the implied reversal of the lower
right :irm checks rhe forward rhrnsr suggested by
the movement of d1e upper Lorso and the drapery, a
notable difference from the d'Esre bust whose significance wiJl emerge when we consider the equestrian portrait of Louis.
The cxtraordinai.y drapery and Bernini's special
concern char it seem to be flowing freely in ihe
wind may also be understood in the same contexc
of exultation and exakarion alllmtica. 43 The use of
drapery LO ''carry" a portrait bust was derived from
an ancient funereal tradirion in which a portrait of
the deceased was placed agairm a cloLh of honor.
Bernini adapted this device for certain memorials of

the 163o's and 164o's, rransfoi;ming che hanging
doth into a billowing swath of drapery (Fig. 218). 44
The drapery of Francesco d'Este actually Butters
upward and wraps around the torso, Christo-like, so
as co suggest the lower silhouette of a portrait bust
wafted imo the empyrean. Bernini surely devised
this mixLure of objectivity and metaphor LO give
form to a c.rain of political thought, particularly
scro11g among the Jesuir:s, in which the ideal ruler
was conceived as a hero, both human and divine.
The concepL of rhe monarch as a demigod-like
prince-hero had been formu laLed with respect co
Francesco 1 himsel£ shortly after his death in i658,
in a commemorative volume by a leading Jesuit
Modena, Domenico Gamberti, char actually celebrates Bernini's portrait of che duke (Fig. 219). 45
The sculpture rhus represents what it is, an honorific
monument of heroic apotheosis. In the bust of
Louis, Bernini carried this conundrum a significant
step further. Louis's drapety gives no hint of rhe
lower edge of the torso, so rhac rhe figure appears co
or
be what the sculpture represents, a living human
being. Moreover. the clorh blows freely Lo rhe side,
and Louis's cloak becomes a magic carpet, rhe sarcorial c9uivalenr of the cloud fonn:uions above
which the emblematic sun appears Lo Boat.
111e king's device and rhe imagery of Alexander
also coincided in rhe rreacmenc of rhe pedesral. a
final point of difference from the d'Este portrait.
Chanrelou records thar Bernini intended Lo place
the bust of the king on a terrestrial globe of gilded
and enameled copper bearing rhe ingenious inscription Picciola Basa, "small ba.sc"; the globe reseed on a
copper drapery emblazoned wit:b trophies and virtues ( ihesc last were essential aLtribun:s in Bernini's
conception of rhe ideal ruler, as we shall see); and
che whole was set on a platform. l t was a common
device to portray a monarch perched on an earthly
sphere; a specifically French typology had been established by images in which Henry JV was shown thus,
borh as a standing figure and as an equestrian mounted
on a rearing Pegasus. 46 There was also an ancienr

mid-sevenceench cencu ry had been placed on a

been inspired ro apply these ideas to Louis by
anorhcr inventton
Li: Brun's, perhaps again for
Fouquet. I refer to a tapestry door covering, or porrihe, in which the crowned face of the sun shuies
above rhe arms of France and Navarre; be.low, a terrestrial globe tests on a panoply of milirary spoils
(Fig. l22 ) ...f7 ll is indeed as though Le Brun's magnificent and emb!emacic armorial display had sudden ly come to life. 48 T he morivacing force was
evidently Plutarch's familiar description of Lys1ppus's
portrair of Alexander, which combined the upward
and sideward glance with a reference to the earth
below: "When Lysippus first modelled a porrrair of
Alexander with his face curned upward coward Lhl·
sky. just as Alexander himself was accustomed to
gaze, turning his neck gently co ont> side. someone
inscribed, not inappropriaLely, the fo llowing epigram: 'The bronze scacue seems ro p todaim, looking
at Zeus: I place the earth under my sway; you 0
Zeus keep Olympos.' "49 These references were guite
evident ro contemporaries. When Bernini described
his idea fo r the base, Chantelou drew the analogy
with the king's device. 50 Another wimess, no doubr
aware of rhe passage in Plutarch, perceived the link
between the royal emblem and the ancient monarch,
remarking, as Bernini himself reported, char the addition of rhe world as a base enhanced the resemblance to Alexander.51
T he multiple allusions to the royal device and to
the Helios-Alexander tradition fill the bust wirh
meaning; they contribute as well co its expressive
intensity and ro the sense of supernatural aloofness

a single block, "larger than the Constantine," "rhe
largest ever seen in Rome," "the largest ever strnck

whole enterprise, especially considering rhe mountainous base, reminded one contemporary of rhe
archirccr Dinocrates who, in rhc guise of Hercules,
proposed to carve a statue oC Alexander che Great

the ancienr my~tique. emulated by sculptors since
the Renaissance, of l:.irgc-scale monoli thic sculprurc

be raken literally, offering classical preccdenr for the

evenr that must have played a considerable role in

In 1659 the Treaty of che Pyrenees was signed by
France and Spain, whose power was broken. The
treaty established the boundary between che two
countries, with the victo rious Louis agreeing not to
pursue his expansionist designs beyond the Pyrenees.
Louis's marriage che following year to Maria Theresa
of Austria, daughcer of Philip fV and queen of
Leon and Casrlle. forged a new link between the
rwo countries. The spirit of peace and reconciliation
heralded by chese events was invo ked in a trace published in t66o by Bernini's own nephew, Father

The failure of Bernini's visit to Paris is normally
t:iken as a cuming point in French accirudes toward
1talian culture since the Renaissance; the dem ise of
his various projects for rhe Louvre signaled the triumph of a new national self-consciousness and selfconfidence nonh of the Alps. Srylistically these new
arricudes a.re linked to the rc1cccion of che fulsome
rhetonc of che Italian baroque and the development
of the tempered logic of French dassiosm. Although
correct in general terms, this analysis needs to be
qualified, especially on the evidence of what Look
place in the immediately succeeding years when the
king dercnnmed to move boch his residence and the
scat of government from the Louvre to VcrsailJes.
Le Brun adapted Bermni 's equesaian projecc in
designing a monument of Louis. incended initially
for the Louvre but then eVtdendy to be placed
before the facade of Versailles (Fig. 249). uo Le
Brun also presumably designed che stucco relief

POSTSCR I P'I
LOUIS XIV : BERNINI
= MITTERAND : PEI
!"he power of Bernini's image of the Sun King has
been reflected anew in the no less revolutionary developments that have taken place at the Louvre under
Presidem Mirrerand and the architect I. M. Pei. This
rapproch.cment across the centuries is evident in nn
anecdote recounted co me by Pei, who recalled chat on
one occasion Mit'terand said co him, "You can be sure
of one thing. Mr. Pei: r will nor abandon you as Louis
XJV abandoned Bernini!"- a promise the president
has maincained, dcspice a slOL1TI of protest against the
project for a new entrance to the new Grand Louvre.
Owing in part, perhaps, to the sheer logic o f the situation but also in part, surely, by design. Pei has brought
into being several important elements of Bernini's
dream of giving form ro the glory of France.
From the rime of L(>t1is XJV and Bernini onward,
the space between the west facade of the Louvre and
rhe Tuileries was not meant to scand empty. Many
projects were proposed ( Fig. 258 includes those dating
t624-1829), until the series finally came to an end
· in che glass pyramid designed by anorher architecr
imported from abroad, who s ucceeded in illustrating
the breadth of French vision and the grandeur of
cngr~ving.
131blio-
French culture. 125 Bernini himself propo~cd fo r the
area now occupied by Pei's pyramid two theaters,
modeled o n the Colosseum and the Theater of Marcellus in Rome, one Facing the Louvre, the other rhe
Tuileries.126 Placed back to back, with room for ten
thousand spectators on either side, the cheaters would
have realized o n a monumental scale the effect of one
of Bernini's fobled comedies, in wh ich he created rhe
illusion of two theaters and two audiences in plain
view of o ne ani)ther. 127 The two theaters at the Louvre
would have reHected the s pectacle of French civic and
ceremonial life ar its very hearr.
T his is exactly what Pei has created-a great specracle at the veritable center of French cul.rural life. And
he has achieved this rcsuk, which mighc be d.:scribed
as maximum, with means that can be described as
minimum ( Figs. 259, 260 ). Apart from its symbolic
associar:ions ( Pei denies chat he intended any-cf. Fig.
261) , 128 the pyramid is the simplest and least obtrusive
o(StrUCturaJ forms, and glass, whether opn.que Or LtanS·
parent, is the most self-effacing structural material.
When the glass is opaque, ir mirrors the scene of people from all over the world who have come to enjoy,
participate in, and pay homage to French culture, with
the sacrosanct facades of the Louvre as thei r backdrop.
When the glass is rransparent, what does one see?

17. On the history of rusric.lnon. see most recently
Ackerman. 1983, 27ff.; Fagiolo. ed.. 1979. Bernini's use of rusticac1on has been created mosr
extensively by Borsi ( 1967, 2cr-43), but the
nature and s1gru6cance of his concr1buaon have
noc been de.lrly defined.
As far ~ I can see, the firsr ro noce !.he duracter and inrimare the significance of Bernini's
rusacat1on was Quarrcmcre de Quincy m hLS
E11ryclopidit anicle on "Opposition": "Ainsi, des
blocs laisses brut:s, des pic1Tes de taille rusriguecs,
donnerom aux soubasscmens d'un mooumem

(1788- 1825, Ill, 36). The reference was brought
co my accenrion by Sylvia Lavin.

20. Ao indicative a.se m point is the rtport concerning Filippo StroZZJ's feigned modesty m
building bis palace in Florence: ~Olcre a molc'alm spese s'aggmnse anco quella de' bozzi di
foori. Filippo quanco piu si vedeva mciure, camo
maggiormente sembianza fuceva di mcarsi, e per
nience diceva di voter fore 1 bozzi, per non csser
cosa civile t: di troppa spesa" (Gaye, 1839-40,
1::355; cited by Roth, t917. 13, 97 n. 22; Sinding
Larsen, 1975, t95 n. 5).
Many passages concerning rustication are
assembled in an anicle by Morolli, in Fagiolo,
ed.. 1979.
2 1. "There are some very ancienl castles still co be
seen ... builr of huge unwroughc stone; which
sort of work pleases me extremely. because re
gives the building a rugged air of :umque severity, which is a very great ornament to a town.

manner, 1.haL the en!!J11y ;tt the bare sighc of
them may be struck with terror, and be sent
away with a distmsL of his own forces" (Alberti,
1965, Bk. Vil. ch. 2, p. r35); "Vtsuncur et vetusta

22. On the first of the~e poinrs see, for example,
Serlio's remarks concerning r:he mixture of nature
and artifice, quoted by Ackerman, 1983, 2.8: "It
would be no error 1f withm one manner one
were co make a mixlurc representing in th.is way
partly rhe work of rua(ure and partly the work of
artifice: thus columns bound down by rustic
stones and also thr archimve and frieze inrer·
rupted by voussoirs reveal the work of nature,
while capitals and pans of the columns and also
the cornice and pedimem represenL tht: work of
the hand; and this 1ruxcure. according to my
Jlidgement, greatly pleases rhc eye and represents
io itself great strcngth.n
On the second poinc, i.ee Ackerman, 1983, H·

i+ For a brief summary and recenr bibliography,
see Borsi, i980, 315. Bernini's original project,
idemiiied by the arms of Innocent X over die
portal, is recorded in a painting in the Camera
dei Deputati, Rome (Figs. 202, 203), ofren attributed to Bern ini's assistant, Mattia de' Rossi
(cf Borsi et al, t972., fig. r6).
The palace wa.s left half-finished after 1654,
following a rupture between the pope and his
niece's husband Niccolo Ludovisi; it w:i.s finally
completed in the early etghteenth century. Only
the rustic:ired strip to t11e right of the central
block was fully "fimshed," along wich the rusocated window sills ( another so:iking innovation
tn lhe design. which Bemrm did not repeat for
the Louvre); see now Terracina and Vicronni,

M. J. Price brought to my attenuon a com of
Alexander of Pherae in which a dm:e-quaner
head of Hecate appears oo rhe obverse (Gardner
and Poole, 1883, 47 no. 14> pl X fig. 11). The
rd:monship ro Alexander and allegorical portraiture gene.rally was formulated perfectly by
Wittkower, 1951 ( 18): "Bernini rejected the
popular rype of allegorical portraiture then in
fovour at the court of Louis XIV which
depicted le Roi Sole/I in the guise of Apollo, of
Alexander, or of a Roman Emperor. Berninj's
allusion co Aleirander was expressed by physical
and psycholog1cal a.fftnities, noc by cxtemaJ
:icmbuces." Allegory was confined ro the base,
which also remforced che all~-10n to Aluandrr;

Litle of the book, Fmncesco was commander of

of Louis's conception of kingship (see Fumaroli,

Constantine, begun by Louis XIII :10d completed by Urban Vlll, had drawn a connection
between the French king, Constantine, and the
pope (Dubon, 1964).

serait la statue du Roi a cheval avec le mot de
IJC)ll plus ultra, allusion a celle d'Hercule" (Chantelou, 1885, 96, August 13)· The project is
reAected in rhe medal of Charles VI of 1717
illustrated in Fig. 235 ( Koch, 1975-76, 59; Volk,
1966, 61 ); here, however, the equestrian group,
d1e pedestal, the columns, and the motto are all
returned to their traditional forms and reconverted to the traditional theme of Hapsburg
imperialism. For more of the legacy of Bernini's
idea, see n. 79 below.
Combinacory chinking as a means of superseding the gr.eat monuments of antiquity also
underlies Bernini's a.lreniativc project for rhe area
between the Louvre and the Tuileries- a double
structure for spectacles and stage performances,
joining the Colosseum to the ThcaLer of Marcellus (Chantelou, 1885, 96, August 13) - perhaps reflected in a fo.ter project reproduced by
Del Pesce, LI Louvre, 1984, fig. 43; cE pp. 42,

79. A certain precedent is provided by Roman sarcophagi in which the labors of Hercules ;m
placed between columns with spiral fluting
( c£ Robert, 1969, pan l, 143££, pls. XXJVff.)
and in works like the Hercules fountain in the
Villa Aldobrandini at Ft'ascati, where water
descends around the pair of colwnns in spiral
channels ( D'Onofrio, 1963, figs. 78, 82., 86, 90;
Fagiolo dell'Arco, 1964, 82fE; R. M. Steinberg,
1965). The columns of Lhe Hapsburg device,
often shown entwined by spiraling banners, were
idencilled by Rubens CJ. R. Manin, 1972, pl. 37)
wirh the twisted colwru1s in St. Peter's in Rome,
supposedly brought from the Temple ofJerusalern by Constantine the Great; see also a painting of Augustus and the Sibyl by Antoine Caron
(Yares, 1975, 145, fig. 2.I). Yer, none of these
cases involved Bernini's clear and explicit conHation of the triumphal and Herculean columns.
Perhaps Bernini was himself alluding to the
pair of columns erected by Solomon before the
Temple of Jerusalem ( 1 Kings Tl4-22; 2 Cheon.
3=17); these were rm1uencly assoc1ai.cd with the
twisted columns al St. Peter's, .m a.ssoaation that
had played an important role an Bernini's designs
for rhe crossing of Sr. Pertr's. ( Livin. &m1m,
1968, 4ff, 34; the paired columns of Perrault's
Louvre facade have been linked co the Temple of
Solomon by Corboz, 1984). Ifs<>, Bernini would
have been the first ro exi;end the association to
the 11Tlperia1 spirnJ columns, an idea thac was
then taken up by Fischer von Erb.ch in the St.
Charles Churc:h, Vienna, bu1lc for Ourles VI:
the prur of columns flanking the facade is identified in one source as Conscancy and Formude,
in reference ro rhc biblical names of Solomon's
columns, Jachin and Boaz, meaning ''He shaU
est.ilblish" and "Jn it i~ strength" (cf. Fergwson,
1970, l21ff.). ftSCher seems also to echo the
design and the themes of Giacomo Lauro's
reconsrrucaon of the ancient temple of H onor
and Virruc in Rome, to be discussed presently.

Kircher also wrote a book on the Piazza
Minerva obelisk ereeted by Bernini shortly afier
his rerum from Paris (H eckscher, 1947); in certain workshop stuilies for the monument the
obelisk is hdd up by allegoncal figures posed on
a rocky base (Brauer and Wirtkower. 1931, pis.
176, 177b; cf also D'Onofrio, 1965, fig. i34 opp.
P· i35).
Bernini's preoccupacion at rh1s period with
the theme of the rocky mounuin of virtue is
expressed also m a sencs of dowmgs of devotional themes, which evidently began during lus
sr.ay in Paris. The compositions porrray penitent
sames kneeling and ccstacically worshiping a crucifix that lies prone before chem; ill pomay the
event taking place atop a rocky peak. See Brauer

A legacy of Bernini's idea, and an echo of his
linking ir to France, are evident in the pair of
monumenral spiral columns chat formed part

88. The force of the ecclesio-political associations
evoked by die columns is witnessed by another
project from the time of Alexander VU (published by Krautheimer, 1983, 206, and idm1, r985,
58f.) that envisaged making the column of
Marcus Aurelius the mast of a fountain in the
form of a ship- the navicella of Sr. Peter, the
ship of the church. Although related to a specific boar-fountain type (for which see Hibbard
and Jaffe, 1964), the project obviously revives a
proposal made by Papirio Barroli early in che
seventeenth century to create a choir in the
crossing of Sc. Peter's in the form of a ship
whose mast was a bronze version of the column
of Trajan, with reliefs of the Passion ( Hibbard
the statue, but he clearly understood the Bemim
project in the light of current political repercussions of the treaty. A confusing error by Vivanti,
1967, pl. 21e, concerning the print, was corrected
by Johnson, 40 n. 12.

may be deeper still. Menestrier (de constrained
to publish a whol.e volume (1679) tn which he
defended rhe king's Nu Pluribus lmpar emblem of
r662 against a claim that 1t had been used earlier
by Philip IT. Mcnm'rier was certainly right, but
it is no less clear that the device was invented as
a response, from Louis's new position of power,
to che Hapsburg claim to world dominion.
( Although he did noc connea 1t to the treaty,
K. 0. Johnson. 1981. 40 n. 17, also recognized
that Lows's device had Spanish connotaoons
from the beginning.) The Lyon tableau belongs
to the same context, and r suspect its rocky
mountains nuy be reffecred not only in the b~
of Bernini's equest:rUn starue but also in che
uoglimi of the Louvre itself. fhe Peace of the
Pyrenees and its implications were fundamental
to Bernini's conception of the S un King, and
linking the globe of the Nee Pluribus lmpar
emblem with the mountain of the Non Ultra
tableau provided the common ground for
the image he created in :tll three projeccs for
Lhe king.

The idea of Paris surpassing Rome was expressed
by Bermn1 himself at his first meeting with the
king (cf p. 147 and n. r2 above) and was bruited
in a French sonner extolling Bernini and rhc
king (Chantelou, r885, r49, September 9).
Robert Berger (1966) has persuasively argued
that Bernini's first Louvre project, including its
characteristic drum-wirhour-dome rn~rif, doffed
its hat, as il were, co an ideal ch ~ceau design of
1652 by Antoine Lepautre.

Bernini explicitly recalled the piazza of SL
Peter's in his planning for the area between rhe
Louvre and the Tuileries as well as for that in
front of the Louvre (Chantelou, 1885, 42, July
1; 52, July 15). B. Bouchet (1981) has recently
suggested that Bernini's first design for the
Louvre reflected early projects by Peruzzi for
Sc. Peter's.

for such an interpretation of rhe theme in Rome
early in the century: Cardinal Scipione Borghese

Bernini's father, Pietro, had portrayed che subject

merely an extension and refinement of Berger's

Enve!oppe at Versailles were the Italian villa

palaces. French indebredness co Bernini later aL

u8. K. 0. Johnson, 1981, 33££ Our attention here
being focused in the legacy at Versailles of
Bernini's ideas for the Louvre, l will not pursue
possible relationships between the planning of
the chateau and other projects in which Bernini
had been involved- notably those between the
approach with twin buildcridentine aven ues
ings at the angles and the Piazza de! Popolo at
Rome ( most recently, Castex et al, 1980, 7ff., a
reference for which l am indebted to G uy
Walton). A similar arrangement was proposed

to the main facade of the Louvre (cf Chastel

On Bernini, the ami-Machiavcllian tradition,
and the prince-hero (p. 163), see Lavin, 1991.
T he anti-Machiavellian tradition, first defined by
Meinecke, 1924, has been sLudied by De Mattei,
1969 and 1979, and the theories of the chief
exponents in the sixreenth and seventeenth cenruries have been summarized by Bireley, 1990.
This development in the secular sphere had a
close and surely related corollary in the rheological principle of heroic virtue, essential in the
process of canonizing saints, first introduced in
1602 and elaborately formulated later in the century (for which see Hofmann, 1933; Encicloptdia
cattolita, r948-54, Ill, s.v. "Canonizza.zione," cols.

present contcxr, however, Keller's work has a
critical shortcoming: :tlthough his perception of
Bernini's inren1 ion is sound. Keller excludes Bernini's equesrrian Louis XIV as expressing 3Jl
