Theophile Langlois de Chevreville was a student of Baron Gros. He later worked as an artist in Rome, Geneva, Rouen and Paris.
The attribution of this portrait to Baron Gros is traditional. It was recently reviewed by five scholars and curators in the field of French portraiture. Two said that they believed that the attribution to Baron Gros was correct, although they were not at liberty to be quoted owing to their professional positions. The others preferred not to comment for the same reason. None disputed the attribution. It is our belief that the traditional attribution to Baron Gros is correct.
