Portraits in 3 Centuries of French Art

What is a portrait?  Can aportrait be someting other than a person?  Today we are going to look at 3 centuries of French Art through the lens of some portraits painted in each era.  Some of the portraits will be mythological, some about power, some about light.  I will leave it to you to decide and we will talk about it

We will start in the 1600s and end at the turn of the last century.
