- Curator's comments
- The portrait of Henri III is in the Musée Condé, Chantilly (PE 256); the attribution of the painting is uncertain; it was given to Jean Decourt by Dimier (GBA XXVIII, 1902, p.405) and François Clouet by Gruyer.
The whole-length portrait of François d'Anjou is closely related to a drawing in the Bibliothèque Nationale, of which there is a reproduction in the Department of Prints and Drawings (1902,0617.123; not catalogued, but in the same wrapper as the present print) that identifies it as a work by François Quesnel.
