A divided period of French history
The fratricidal conflicts between Catholics and protestants in France during the second half of the 16th century deeply marked consciences and artists. The clash of arms was paralleled by that of the image, in which the portrait plays a significant role. The collection of drawn, engraved or painted Renaissance portraits held in Chantilly makes it possible to present the protagonists of these events and provide an eloquent overview of this divided period of French history.
