  • Painting Description

    "Jean Baptiste Colbert 1619-83 presents the map of the Canal du Languedoc to Louis XIV" is an engraving created in 1788 by Antoine Louis François Sergent-Marceau, with the engraving work done by Jean Baptiste Morret, who was active between 1790 and 1820. This artwork captures a significant historical moment, depicting Jean Baptiste Colbert, the influential French statesman and Minister of Finances under King Louis XIV, presenting the map of the Canal du Languedoc to the monarch.

    The Canal du Languedoc, also known as the Canal du Midi, was a monumental engineering project of the 17th century, designed to connect the Mediterranean Sea to the Atlantic Ocean via the Garonne River. This canal was a significant achievement in French civil engineering and played a crucial role in the economic and commercial development of the region. Colbert, known for his efforts to strengthen the French economy and infrastructure, was a key proponent of this project, which was eventually completed under the supervision of Pierre-Paul Riquet.

    Antoine Louis François Sergent-Marceau, the artist behind this engraving, was a notable French engraver and revolutionary figure. His works often reflected the political and social changes of his time. In this particular piece, Sergent-Marceau captures the grandeur and importance of the moment, emphasizing the collaboration between the monarchy and its ministers in advancing the nation's infrastructure.

    Jean Baptiste Morret, the engraver, was active during a period of significant artistic and political change in France. His contribution to this work involves the meticulous detailing and precision required to bring Sergent-Marceau's vision to life. The engraving not only serves as a historical document but also as a testament to the artistic and technical skills of its creators.

    This artwork is a valuable representation of the intersection between art, politics, and engineering in 18th-century France, highlighting the contributions of key figures like Colbert and the broader context of French innovation and statecraft during the reign of Louis XIV.
