Roger de Lorraine, knight of Guise - Ferdinand II She

Oil on canvas oval put to the rectangle under Louis-Philippe duc d'Orléans king of the French. French school around 1650, attributed to Louis Ferdinand Elle l'Ancien (1612 - 1689).
This is the only painted portrait of the Chevalier de Guise, Roger de Lorraine. Until now, only an engraving by Balthasar Moncornet (Brussels 1600 - Paris 1668) brought his image to posterity (ill. 6). Our painting, previously kept in the Château d'Eu, came from the collections of the Grande Mademoiselle and then of King Louis-Philippe by descent.

Provenance :
- Anne Marie Louise d'Orléans (1627-1693), known as ''La Grande Mademoiselle'', Duchess of Montpensier and cousin of King Louis XIV.
- Louis-Auguste de Bourbon (1670-1736), duke of Maine, legitimate son of king Louis XIV and heir of the Grande Mademoiselle.
- His son, Louis-Auguste de Bourbon (1700-1755), prince of Dombes.
- His brother, Louis-Charles de Bourbon (1701-1775), Count of Eu.
- His first cousin, Louis-Jean-Marie de Bourbon (1725-1793), duke of Penthièvre.
- His daughter, Marie-Adélaïde de Bourbon-Penthièvre (1753-1821), duchess of Orléans.
- His son, Louis-Philippe d'Orléans (1773-1850), duke of Orléans then king of the French.
- His son, Louis d'Orléans (1814-1896), duke of Nemours.
- His son, Ferdinand d'Orléans (1844-1910), duke of Alençon.
- Then by descent.

Our portrait is presented in an exceptional Louis XIV period carved and gilded oak frame with a brass cartel bearing the inscription : Roger de Lorraine - Chevalier de Guise - 1624- 1653. Two wax stamps on the back.
Dimensions: 64 x 54 cm - 85 x 74 cm with the frame

Inscriptions in stencil on the back: CM for Collection Montpensier (Anne Marie Louise d'Orléans duchess of Montpensier (1627-1693) known as "La Grande Mademoiselle") and "Roger de Lorraine / Chevalier de Guise, last son of Charles de Lorraine, Duke of Guise and Joyeuse and Henriette-Catherine Duchess of Joyeuse, Montpensier and Guise.
