La Fayette by CyrilT La Fayette by CyrilT
Return to big influence of traditional painting, and masters like Sargent, Gérôme, Pyles, Whytes ..., Mullins for the cg painting.
General Gilbert du Motier, marquis de Lafayette, French general during American Revolutionary War general. Inspired by the painting of Joseph-Désiré Court Portrait of Gilbert Motier the Marquis De La Fayette as a Lieutenant General, 1791.
A new occasion to testing my brush and make an illustration without lighting effect ... return to sobriety ;-)

Hope you`ll like it.

Great portrait of Lafayette in 1791. Hope you will stay with the French Revolution. I'd love to see your portait of Queen Marie Antoinette in 1791 :)
