Louis XV painting of officer hussard Bercheny regiment



This Louis XV oil painting on canvas depicts a hussar officer of the first regiment known as Bercheny, a hussar named after its creator in 1720. It may be him (resemblance) because he had many portraits of himself and all his officers made when he became Marshal. It may also be one of his sons who will succeed him at the head of the regiment, but in any case before 1762, date of the color change of the regiment. The power of the commissioner of this painting is marked by his ceremonial clothing, his decorations, the pair of pistols, one of his hands on the hussar cap, the other on his sword, and the dog at his feet. The size of this antique with the frame is 138 x 120 cm.
