Duke of Orleans

Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description The eldest son of Louis-Philippe, Ferdinand-Philippe (1810-42) became the duke of Orléans when his father was crowned king in 1830. In addition to being a dedicated soldier, the duke, here dressed in the uniform of a lieutenant general, was an exceptionally generous patron of the young artists of the Romantic era in early 19th-century France. Tragically, he died in a carriage accident at the age of 32.
