Oil on canvas. Dimensions: 140 x 215 cm. Now belong to Chateau de Versailles, France. Louis, Duke of Nemours was the second son of King Louis Phillipe of France. Louis became a colonel at the age of 12, and spent most of his life in the military. Appropriately, he is shown in full early Victorian military splendour, all shiny boots, red moire sash and gold epaulettes.
