The Marquis de Beringhen

Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris

This engraving was executed after a lost, nearly three-quarter length portrait by Henri-Horace Roland de la Porte. The sitter of the portrait is Henri Camille, marquis de Beringhen (1693-1770), a member of an aristocratic family originally from the duchy of Cleves who from the time of Henri IV served in various capacities in the armies and royal households of France. He was also portrayed by Jean-Baptiste Oudry.
