Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Bouquet was a French Huguenot (Protestant) who moved to London to avoid persecution in France. The portrait imitates the then-current style of English court portraiture, inspired by fashions generated by Sir Anthony van Dyck. The landscape seen through the window behind the lady is suggested by that on the underside of the cover.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
Inscriptions [Signature] David Bouquet
