Room Cour Marly, France at Louvre Museum:
The monumental statuary displayed here was carved for the park of the Château de Marly. Most of the works were commissioned by Louis XIV at the end of his reign. However, the courtyard is dominated by Guillaume Coustou’s celebrated Horses of Marly, completed in 1745 under Louis XV.
