Ferdinand Victor Leon Roybet (1840-1920) was a successful French artist, acclaimed for his magnificent portraits of well-dressed male figures set in the 16th and 17thcenturies. He is particularly recognised for his Spanish cavalier themed works, of which this is an excellent example. Roybet’s works are reminiscent of those of the 17th century Spanish artist Diego Velázquez and are notable for their realism and the artist’s dramatic use of colour and execution of detail.

This magnificent oil on panel painting by Ferdinand Roybet is an excellent and mature example of the genre of works for which he is best known. It is signed by the artist in the upper right section of the painting.
The painting depicts a young male musketeer, dressed in red velvet buttoned tunic with a white ruffled shirt cuffs and collar. The subject is also wearing a wide brimmed black hat and the most amazing red cloak, draped over his left shoulder. He is holding in his left hand a pair of soft brown leather gloves. His hair is dark, long and curly, and he has both a moustache and beard. His brown eyes gaze out at the viewer with an ambiguous expression, serious and sincere, yet not aggressive.
This is a painting of huge impact and gravitas, with exquisite detail and extraordinary colour.
