Hyacinthe RIGAUD (Perpignan 1659-Paris 1743) Portrait formerly known as the Count of Medavy Canvas. Annotated lower left: Cte de MEDAVY MARÉCHAL DE FRANCE 1651. Old restorations. Accidents to the frame. 130 x 97 cm The annotation proposing to identify the model to Jacques Léonor Rouxel de Grancey (1655-1725), count of Médavy, Knight of the Order of the Holy Spirit in 1711 and Marshal of France of France in 1724, cannot be retained, the brown baton and not fleurdelysé is not that of a marshal of France The date of 1651 is not that of his birth. The consultation of the artist's book of reason did not allow us to to give him his real name. The fashion of the low wig places the execution of the The fashion for the low wig places the execution of the portrait around 1685/1690-1695, i.e. during the first part of Rigaud's career. The staging, with the sitter standing in front of a curtain the model standing in front of a curtain that closes off one side of the composition and reveals a landscape through its raised drapery effect The setting, with the model standing in front of a curtain that falls to block one side of the composition and reveal a landscape through its raised drapery effect, is reminiscent of the procedures of Rigaud's predecessors, who gradually freed himself from them. We can compare our effigy to those of Our effigy can be compared to those of Philippe d'Orléans, Duke of Chartres (Perpignan, Rigaud Museum) in 1689, of Frederick of Denmark (Copenhagen, Kunstmuseum) in 1693, or Ulrik Christian Gyldenloeve (Frederiksborg, Nationalhistoriske museum, 1693). We would like to thank Mrs Ariane James-Sarazin for confirming the attribution to Rigaud and for her precious help in writing this in the writing of this note.

Attributed to Charles Antoine COYPEL (1694-1752) Portrait of Chevalier Jean-Jacques d'Erlach, colonel of the Swiss Guards regiment (1674 - 1742) Canvas in a carved and gilded wooden frame from the Louis XV period. Old restorations. 194 x 130 cm The model is known to us thanks to an old version- The model is known to us thanks to an old version kept in the collection of the Erlach family, in Bern, reproduced in P. de Vallières, Honneur et Fidélité, Histoire des Suisses au service étranger, 1940. The model seems to be "younger" than in our painting, but the pose and posture are the same. Jean-Jacques d'Erlach entered the Guards regiment as a cadet in 1693. He took part in the battle of Nerwinde, where his brother was killed, and served at the siege of Charleroi. He commanded the Compiègne camp in 1698, the Flanders army in 1702-1703-1704 and distinguished himself in many other campaigns. He was made brigadier of the king's armies in 1719 and became captain of the grenadiers of his regiment the same year. In 1734, he was appointed Marshal of the Camp, and in 1735, he was employed in this capacity in the Army of the Rhine. In 1736 he succeeded Jean Victor, baron de Besenval as colonel of the Swiss Guards regiment, the most prestigious regiment of the French monarchy. Lieutenant-General in 1738, he was made Commander of the Order of Saint Louis in 1739, Grand Cross in 1741; he died a few months later on November 4, 1742 and was buried in Saint-Eustache in Paris. Our painting is therefore to be placed between these two dates. The 17th century saw the creation, in France, of one of the most prestigious orders of merit in Europe and undoubtedly the most popular and prized of the monarchic period. It was Louis XIV who instituted the Royal and Military Order of St. Louis with the edict of 5 April 1693. This was the first French order of merit, offering for the first time the possibility for an officer of non-noble origin to acquire a knighthood in combat. The original statutes made this perfectly clear: "only officers (still from our troops) will be received into this Order and virtue, merit and services rendered with distinction in our armies will be the only qualifications for entry. The new order aroused great fervor in the army and had a very stimulating effect. As Voltaire wrote so well, this decoration was "more sought after than fortune". Each year, a general assembly, preceded by a mass, was to bring together all the members of the Order on Saint Louis Day. The assembly elected for one year a council, composed of six knights, four commanders and two grand crosses, in charge of the administration of the Order. A clerk, a treasurer and a bailiff, chosen from among the senior officials of the Secretariats of War and the Navy and placed at the disposal of the council, were responsible for the day-to-day management of the Order. These officials were entitled to the Knight's Cross of Saint-Louis and the title of officer. The First Consul Napoleon Bonaparte later declared: "Louis XIV would never have been able to fight with advantage against the united Europe, during the War of the Spanish Succession, if he had not had at his disposal the coin of the Cross of Saint Louis. And in creating his Legion of Honor, Napoleon was inspired in many ways by the Order created by Louis XIV. (from: Royal and Military Order of Saint Louis, available on the website: http://www. france-phaleristique.com/ordre_saint_louis.htm). We thank the CNPHDHS for its help in the description description of this portrait.

A young man's suit with rebus buttons, circa 1785-1788, a suit with basques and a small straight collar closed by two clasps, in royal blue pinned silk velvet with only a trim of seventeen large buttons of seventeen large buttons painted with gallant rebus on the front, the pockets, the cuffs and along the and along the slits of the basques. The seventeen buttons offer the viewer, who is intimate enough to decipher them, a to decipher them by approaching, a set of rebus in the form of an ode to love dedicated to the chosen one of the heart of the young man of the young man who commissioned this ornament. Thus, under the collar and along the buttonhole: She loves, In her everything pleases, I had her heart all new, She loves without ceasing, She took my heart, She shines so much by her beauty. Buttons painted on ivory, under glass slightly under glass, slightly domed, copper circled, with metallic caps and fasteners. Inside lining in cream taffeta and linen for the back (two stains on the suit, a missing button, another broken glass). another with broken glass). About the buttons: at the end of the reign of Louis XVI, they take a considerable importance. They are worn, in 1786, as big as a six-franc coin and the elegance consists in changing them frequently. They are most often presented most often under glass and circled with metal, decorated with the most varied reasons: landscapes, scenes of kind, portraits, treated in the most diverse techniques.

Rare suite of six buttons of a set on the theme of the revolutionary days of late June and early July 1789, miniatures painted on ivory under glass circled and metal fasteners. Each of the episodes represented is captioned below, most of them are identifiable. The King at the Assembly and the Motion of M de Mirabeau : after the Oath of the Jeu de Paume, June 23, 1789 in the Salle des Etats Généraux of the Hôtel des Menus Plaisirs in Versailles, Louis XVI threatened to dissolve the Constituent Assembly. Mirabeau is said to have had this famous reply: "Go and tell those who send you that we are here by the will of the people, and that we will not be torn from it except by the power of bayonets. Report to the City Committee: after the storming of the Bastille, it could be the day of July 15 1789 and the meeting of La Fayette, dressed as the commander of the National Guard created that day, and J. S. Bail and J. S. Bailly proclaimed mayor of Paris that same day. Finally, following this chronology, the last three buttons, The King, The Queen and The King and the Queen would evoke in a satirical way the day of July 17: the King and the Queen preceded by a page carrying the sword go to Paris escorted by National Guards; on the last button the King is reduced to the size of a child, dominated by the Queen accompanied by one of her attendants, perhaps the influential Princess of Lamballe, they meet a delegation which probably includes La Fayette and Bailly who will give him the tricolour the tricolor cockade.
