Allegory of Wealth 1630-35 Oil on canvas, 170 x 124 cm amuse du Louvre, Paris

The fleshly opulence and joyful coloring of Simon Vouet made him, to some extent, a French Rubens. On his return from Rome in 1627 he became Court Painter to Louis XIII and was the founder of that tradition of decorative panting which Le Brun developed. $250.00.
