Narrator, Dedo von Kerssenbrock-Krosigk, former curator, The Corning Museum of Glass.
Former curator Dedo von Kerssenbrock-Krosigk describes the Portrait Medallion of Louis XIV, which is made of colorless glass that was cast and later cold-painted and mirrored. It is symbolic of the presentation and gift giving of the Sun King, and together with tapestries, silver and furniture, added to the diversity of artistic media, techniques and materials championed during the second half of the 17th century. It was made by Bernard Perrot, a talented glassmaker of Italian origin, who organized new glassworks in the city of Orleans, south of Paris.
