According to the authentic inscription "de Courtavel" on verso, this miniature portrait of a French officer from 1730s (due to his uniform and hairstyle - see comparison image nr.15) is that of the Marechal-de-camp (lowest general's rank in French Royal Army) Hubert de Courtavel, marquis de Pezé (1680-1734). Still in 1716, being lieutenant, he became one of the chamberlains of the little King Louis XV. On 29th September 1734, together with his 2nd Infantry Battalion of Regiment "Du Roy", he took part in the Battle of Guastalla (France and Piemont against Austria) where he was mortally wounded (see our images nr.13-14).
Provenance: famous Parisian collection Bernard-Franck.
Bernard-Franck was a veteran of the 1870 Franco-Prussian War, who later in life became a wealthy manufacturer of military equipment. He had a very important collection of paintings and works of art from the Napoleonic Epoch (see our first additional image).
