Oil on canvas.
Our gentleman with a haughty bearing, probably a member of the French aristocracy, is portrayed three-quarters face up. His shoulders are turned away from the viewer, and with a gesture of his right hand, he raises his blue coat lined with purple.
Our painter, an artist of the French school of the second half of the 17th century, is the worthy heir of the masters of the genre under the reign of Louis XIV. Like Hyacinthe Rigaud, Nicolas de Largillière, Pierre Mignard, Claude Lefevre, François de Troy or Pierre Gobert, he was able to capture the determined expression of this young man with fine features.
In its carved and gilded wood frame of the period.
