Charles Le Brun (1619-1690) was a French artist who served as court painter for Louis XIV during the 17th century.

Among his other works, Le Brun (whose name is also spelled LeBrun) created a series of paintings featuring Alexander the Great.

This image depicts a painting Le Brun called “Entry of Alexander into Babylon.” Created around 1664, the oil-on-canvas features the artist’s impression of an important moment in the life of Alexander III of Macedon (also called “The Great”).
