Catalogue Note

Born at Versailles as the eldest son of Charles X of France, the duc d'Angoulême was the last Dauphin of France.  After his father abdicated the throne in 1830, he did the same and then exiled himself from France, dying in the Veneto.  Kinson was the official portraitist to the duc d'Angoulême and painted several portraits of him in different versions.  The prime, full-length version of the present painting, was exhibited at the Salon of 1819 and is now at the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Bordeaux.
