Catalogue Note

This composition of Marguerite Duchesse de Berry (1492-1549) follows the examples made by Corneille de Lyon. The prototype is thought to be in Versailles, with minor differences in the pose of the face and necklace.[1] A similar version is held at Chantilly, where the sitter wears a different dress.[2] The fine renaissance-style frame is typical for De Lyon's works. The Portrait of Louise de Rieux, Marquise d'Elbeuf (1531-1570), by De Lyon, in the Musée du Louvre (inv. no. R.F. 669), is in a similar renaissance-style frame.
