Description
Cerchia di Francois de Troy - Ritratto di Nobildonna
Oil on canvas - Not signed - Inizio del XVIII

Antique painting, oil on canvas, first quarter of the 18th century, depicting a beautiful portrait of a noblewoman.
On the beautiful coeval frame, hand-carved and gilded, is a label with the attribution of the work to Francois de Troy.
François de Troy (Toulouse 1645 - Paris 1730) was a French painter, a member of the Académie. Since 1671 he was, alongside Largillière and Rigaud, the most influential portraitist of the Grand Siècle during the reign of Louis XIV.
Troy was much appreciated for his ability to capture the most characteristic expressions of the subjects. Being the only painter at the court of James II, he had to be helped by his pupil Alexis Belle to make all the portraits that were commissioned.
Work probably made by a collaborator in contact with the master or perhaps by de Troy himself.
Work in excellent condition considering the age of the painting, some scattered restorations and repairs of the canvas, one of these can be seen in relief when backlit, but nothing truly noteworthy and relevant. There are no preservation problems to note and the original canvas is supported by a recent, high-quality re-stretching.
Canvas size: 86 x 64.5 cm Frame size: 112 x 89 cm
