Artist's Description

The church of the Val-de-Grâce was built by order of Queen Anne of Austria, wife of Louis XIII of France. After the birth of her son Louis XIV, Anne (previously childless after 23 years of marriage) showed her gratitude to the Virgin Mary by building a church on the land of a Benedictine convent. The church of the Val-de-Grâce, designed by François Mansart and Jacques Lemercier, is considered by some as Paris’s best example of baroque architecture (curving lines, elaborate ornamentation and harmony of different elements). Construction began in 1645, and was completed in 1667.
