Beaux, Raymond - portrait of Duc d'Orleans

This miniature portrait is signed "R de B" for the artist Raymond de Baux who was active in Berlin from 1816-1860.

The sitter is Duc d'Orleans (1810-1842). It can be seen that he has more hair in this portrait, compared to the adjacent one of him, which is a similar pose.

On his birth, he was heir to the French throne, but Ferdinand Philippe d'Orleans (1810-1842) died in a carriage accident.

For more about him see Ferdinand Philippe d'Orléans, Duc d'Orléans
