George was captivated by the court of Louis XIV, and by the gorgeous palace which the French king had built at Versailles. He collected a number of scenes of life at Louis’s court by the Flemish artist Van der Meulen. This painting was among those George lent to his daughter Princess Charlotte to hang at her residence of Warwick House, just around the corner from Carlton House.
