Description

An oil on canvas portrait of a young French courtier, circa 1690.
This evocative antique French school picture has been attributed to the portrait painter Jean-François de Troy (1679-1752).
De Troy was famous as a portrait painter of fashionable society women.
This is a very attractive late 17th century painting surviving in its original frame and stretcher. The canvas appears to be untouched.
