More About this Item


Description

This artwork is a portrait painting based on a sketch that has been attributed to the studio of Francois Clouet. The subject is Charles II (French, 1364-1431), who was the Duke of Lorraine and briefly the Constable of France.

Francois Clouet (French, 1510-1572) was a French Renaissance painter who specialized in painting portraits of members of the French Monarchy. This piece appears to be a modern reproduction of Clouet's work as a painting based on an uncolored sketch of the Duke.

It is not known when or who made this reproduction because this piece is unsigned and undated. However, it is clearly made by the hands of an educated artist, as the details attest to.

Shipping and packing arrangements and charges are the sole responsibility of the buyer. After payment has been made in full, Antiquorum may, as a service to the buyer, arrange to have the purchased lots packed, insured and shipped at the buyer's request and expense. In this event, the buyer agrees that all said packaging, handling and shipping is at the sole risk of the buyer and that Antiquorum shall have no liability for any loss or damage to the purchased lots. Antiquorum may move the property to an off-site storage facility at the risk of the buyer. Buyer will be required to pay all applicable taxes, or fees levied by any authority (unless Antiquorum receives satisfactory proof of exemption, to be determined in Antiquorum's sole discretion) including, without limitation, New York City sales tax of 8.875 %.
If payment on a lot has not been collected by the twenty-fifth calendar day following the sale, the invoice remaining unpaid will be automatically charged to the bidder's credit card, and the bidder will be liable for an additional administration and handling charge equal to three and one half (3 1/2 %) percent of the total invoice.
