Louis XIV is depicted aged about 15 and dressed in a military parade uniform. The artist uses a theatrical effect, opening a curtain on the scene. He also uses allegory – Fame who crowns him with laurel and the putto handing him the olive branch. But he is also careful to show topographical realism below in the detailed description of the place Dauphine and the place du Pont-Neuf in Paris.
