La Valliére

La Valliére

This image is composed in layers cut out with a scalpel. Each layer is separated from the other with clear resin, achieving remarkable depth. The duchesse de La Valliére was the first mistress of Louis XIV of France. She was kind and religious ultimately betrayed by Louis and humiliated by the court at Versailles.

About trompehalf

I am an artist with a fascination with history. Not battles per se, but the culture and personalities that shape history. Gossip is good too.
