Nanteuil’s engraving is consistent with the design of many other portraits in the exhibition, but the typically heavy oval frame is set into the base of a column situated in an ideal, Italianate landscape. The sitter’s brother, Jean Lepautre, who is known for his imaginative inventions and decorative prints, made this etched part of the composition. Besides a ruin and anonymous figures dotting the countryside in the background, it features the architect’s tools strewn around the foreground. The portrait adorned a volume titled Les oeuvres d’architecture d’Anthoine Le Paultre, Architecte ordinare du Roy [The Architectural Works of Antoine Lepautre, Regular Architect to the King], as inscribed at the bottom of the print, which was published in Paris sometime during the mid-1650s.
