NOTES: In 1655 the architect Le Vau was commissioned by Louis XIV to design a summer apartment for his mother Anne of Austria. This was situated on the ground floor of the south wing and was lavishly decorated by Romanelli in 1655-1658. The subject of the painting refers to the peace treaty signed between France and Spain ending the Franco-Spanish war which had lasted from 1635-1658.
