This is probably a 19th century painting based on the drawing by Clouet in the Museum of Fine Art, Boston (inv. no. 46.350). Other versions of this painting also exist, such as one attributed to the Workshop of François Clouet in the Musée du Louvre, Paris (inv. no. 3270). The sitter represented in the present painting was the Governor of Francis II and Charles IX and Superintendent of the House of Catherine de Medici.
