Eugène Delacroix. Louis d'Orléans Showing His Mistress.
Louis d'Orléans Showing His Mistress illustrates an episode from Brantôme’s Vies des dames galantes; the Duke lifts a veil from his nude mistress for the edification of his chamberlain. However, he takes care to conceal her face, for she is, in fact, the chamberlain's wife.
