Ornament raises many questions and drives us to define more precisely the artistic beauty conceived by the seventeenth century French. Sometimes the ornament applies to motifs related to a repertoire of the artist-decorator, sometimes it encompasses the very beauty of art, and extends to territories that touch the political, religious, social. To grasp its specificity makes it necessary to re-evaluate the place of painting in the arts system in the 17th century. From architecture to music, from furniture to cloth, to the great figures of the art of the Grand Siècle, this book calls to discover a vast and important field of art history of that time still too much little exploited.
