ATTRIBUTED TO CLAUDE DERUET (NANCY 1588 - 1660)
Portrait of a Lady in a pink dress
oil on canvas
73 x 60 cm (28 2/3 x 23 1/2 in.)

The present work reflects Claude Deruet’s canon of sublime feminine beauty, or ‘façon Deruet’ as it was known at the time, which the painter had developed in 1640s. (1) Fascinated by the concept of feminine beauty, he became the preferred portraitist for many leading Ladies of the day.

Deruet trained in the workshop of Jacques Bellange (1575-1616), and then in Italy with Cavaliere d'Arpino (1568-1640) and Antonio Tempesta (1555-1630); all great masters whom he learnt his maneria from. He was appointed chief painter to the duchy of Lorraine in 1620 by Henry II and painted Louis XIII in 1624.
