Caption: Louis-Philippe de Rigaud de Vaudreuil, Marquis de Vaudreuil (16911763)
The eldest son of the Governor General of New France, de Rigaud de Vaudreuil distinguished himself commanding warships in the Marine royale française. The portrait does not show the subject wearing the characteristic white cross of the Order of Saint-Louis, which means it probably predates 1721, when he was made a member.
