This is not the first time I’ve sold a print of Gabrielle d’Estrees and one of her sisters at Fine Art America. I find it an engagingly unexpected piece for the 16th century. An art expert might laugh at me for my ignorance and point me in the direction of a treasury of such unexpected 16th century artwork.

Gabrielle d’Estrees and one of her sisters, or Portrait presume de Gabrielle d’Estrees et de sa soeur la duchesse, was at one time attributed to Frans Pourbus and at another to Francois Clouet. The true artist remains unknown but the picture belongs to the School of Fontainebleau. Painted in oil on an oak panel in 1594, it now hangs in the Louvre.
