 Charles Le Brun
Le Brun was made first painter to the king, given an enormous salary, and until his death occupied a position of paramount importance in the artistic life of France not equaled until the advent of the painter Jacques-Louis David at the end of the 18th century.
From the 1660s, commissions for decoration of the royal palaces, notably Versailles, were given automatically to Le Brun and his assistants, and in 1663 the Academy of Painting and Sculpture was reorganized with Le Brun as director.
Le Brun's own painting style was a more dramatic and sensuous version of Poussin's static and monumental manner--seen in "Horatius Cocles Defending Rome" (1644)--which became dulled and generalized when applied to large surfaces.

 A new error analysis for Brun's constant
is convergent, in contrast to the known divergence of the sum of the reciprocals of all the primes (Brun actually omitted the first term in parentheses, which of course does not affect the convergence).
The validity of the conjecture (2), sometimes titled the Hardy-Littlewood approximation, is central to the estimation of Brun's constant and the error bounds in this paper.
