A massive fireworks display outside the Episcopal Palace, Strasbourg, with spectators lining the river. In 1744 Louis XIV travelled to Germany to join his army fighting the War of the Austrian Succession.

When he recovered a five-day party was held, with the events recorded in 'Représentation des fêtes données par la ville de Strasbourg pour la convalescence du roi, à l'arrivée et pendant le séjour de Sa Majesté en cette ville', with this being plate 5 of 11.
