Cérémonie du mariage de Louis XIV Roi de France et de Navarre avec la Sérénissime Infante Marie Thérèse d'Autriche fille aînée de Philippe IV Roi d'Espagne en MDCLX

Translated Print Title: 
[Marriage Ceremony of Louis XIV, King of France and of Navarre, with the Most Serene Infanta Maria Theresa of Austria, Eldest Daughter of Philip IV, King of Spain, in 1660]

A direct sequel to the adjacent print, this engraving represents the wedding ceremony held on June 9, 1660, in the church of Saint-Jean-de-Luz and performed by the bishop of Bayonne. Wearing a royal gown and crown, Maria Theresa is about to be fully assimilated into the French court.

By rendering these two tapestries, Edme Jeaurat continued the work of his famous father-in-law, Sébastien Le Clerc, who fifty years earlier had engraved five scenes from the same series.
