Louis (1729-1765), son of Louis XV of France (whom he predeceased) and Marie Leczinska, was the father of Louis XVI, Louis XVIII, and Charles X. He is shown in the uniform of colonel of dragoons and wears the Order of the Saint-Esprit.

There are several versions or copies of this composition, usually bust size only. This is likely to be an early copy.
