My explorations into history and art and travel to France; as I work on my historical novel,
"None but a King: The Life of Anne of Brittany"
Tuesday, September 27, 2011
I photographed this reproduction of a small painting by Jean Bourdichon. It shows Anne, Louis and their daughter Claude with Francois, to whom she was already betrothed. As heir to the crown unless or until Anne and Louis should have a son, Francois lived with them in the court.
The original is at the Ecole nationale superiore des beaux-arts, Paris.
