Catalogue Note

Another version of this impressive portrait is in the Gemäldegalerie, Dresden (inv. no. 758). As the Dresden version dates to circa 1710, and it is likely that the present painting dates to the same period.  The sitter was first identified as the Chamberlain of Montargu by Karl Woerman in 1887; though this has not been fully confirmed, the Dresden version has since catalogued the sitter as such with certainty.
