Portrait of Béatrice de Cusance, Princess of Cantecroix


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description The half-length portrait represents the princess turned to the right, her face in three-quarters view. Her hair is cut with short locks at the sides, and with a slight bang over the forehead. She wears a decolleté blue and white dress trimmed with deep, pointed white lace, a necklace of pearls, as well as a rope of pearls fastened to her collar on either side. A thin line of gold frames the portrait, which is probably based on a contemporary painting or an engraving after a painting. Beatrice de Cusance, daughter of Claude de Beauvoir, married in 1635 the wealthy Eugène Léopold d'Oiselet, Prince of Cantecroix.
Provenance George Robinson Harding, New York [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1918, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
Inscriptions The lower edge of the plaque is inscribed in gold: BEATRIX COSANTIA PRINCEPS CANTECROYANA ETC.
