  2. Oh the suspense is killing me! I have my suspicions but shy away from publishing them as I'm probably wrong...Hmmm, I wonder, I'm going to do some research!
    I love it!

  3. Hottie is right! And I like his understated winter wear. The fur is so discreet.

    I'm not as up on my Francotramps as I am on my Anglotramps, so I have a very limited pool to choose from. Based on his style of dress/wig, maybe he crossed paths with du Barry, early in her career. Feel free to laugh openly--it was a stab in the dark.

    (I think I have that portrait of him in a costume book somewhere, but I guess that would be cheating :)

    All i'm sure about is that the painter is Drouais and that i wish to lock mouths with the subject.

  7. He looks a bit like the young Baron de Besenval, but I'm not completely sure about it. And I really don't know whether or not the baron was Garbrielle's lover.
