Catalogue Note

The present work is inscribed at lower right with a key identifying not only the sitters in the portrait, but also the ancestors and family friends depicted in the portraits on the wall behind them. Also shown are the house and garden of the Château de Castille at Argilliers, which was largely added to by the Baron.  In the 20th Century, the house was bought and restored by Douglas Cooper, the collector and patron of the Cubists, whose works he hung in the castle.
