Costume design for Philip the Good, Duke of Burgondy, part of a portfolio of 82 designs by Bianchini for 'Jeanne d'Arc' by the Paris Opera Company, 1897. Philip the Good is depicted on three-quarter view, looking to the left, with his left foot extended towards the front and his right arm slightly lifted in front of him. He wears a dark purple doublet with green borders, decorated with rich golden interlacing motifs, and a matching cape, over a chemise with golden decorations on the sleeves and white gloves. The hose are of cream color, as well as the pointed-toe flat shoes. A fur scarf is around the neck, and a black double belt with golden interlacing motifs is tied around his wais. He wears a golden crown over a red hat, flanked on the crown by a fleur de lis.
