We offer this important and rare antique French School miniature watercolour portrait of Antoine Gaston Duke of Roquelaure (1656-1738) believed to date from around 1700. Antoine Gaston was appointed Marshall of France in 1724. The stunning oval framed portrait we believe is probably painted on velum and is extremely well executed. It is mounted in its original oval blackened frame with a gilt mount and oval shaped glass. The back retains its original backing paper which the previous owner carefully removed and the details of the portrait are written in French underneath, however he did not remove the portrait from the frame . The portrait has a small attached hanging loop which tests as solid gold. An exceptional and rare quality portrait to add to any serious collection!
