The Dauphin François, Son of François I
Oil on panel, 16 x 13 cm
Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten, Antwerp
The court painter Jean Clouet's royal child belongs to the tradition of courtly painting. It is a little stiff, and rather idealises its subject with a great deal of attention to external decoration. A chalk study for this little portrait, in its fine, antique style frame in imitation marble, is now kept in the museum at Chantilly.
