Lot Essay

François Clouet is known as a portrait painter in large scale as well as in miniature. Comparing this portrait with the technique of another in the Victoria & Albert Museum which is believed to be by his hand, the modelling of the brushstrokes and the way in which they relate to the form are almost identical.
We are thankful to Jim Murrell, Conservator in the Victoria & Albert Museum, for his help in preparing this catalogue entry
