Description While copying in the Louvre, Miller was attracted to a painting showing a man drawing a sword. At the time, this picture was thought to be by the Venetian master Giorgione (1478 (?)-1511), and to represent Pierre Terrail Bayard, the renowned, early 16th-century French knight and national hero who is remembered as "le chevalier sans peur et sans reproche" (the knight without fear and beyond reproach). The Louvre picture is now attributed to Pietro de Muttoni, known as Pietro della Vecchia (1605-1678).
