The striking formality of the pose of this sitter holding gloves, and his direct address of the viewer, may indicate his prominent position in society.
George Blumenthal, New York (by 1926–d. 1941; cat., vol. 1, 1926, pl. LII, no. 1, as by Corneille de Lyon; life interest to his widow, Mrs. Ralph K. Robertson, 1941–66)
Stella Rubinstein-Bloch. Catalogue of the Collection of George and Florence Blumenthal. Vol. 1, Paintings—Early Schools. Paris, 1926, unpaginated, pl. LII, no. 1, compares it with the portraits of Jean de Bourbon Vendôme, Count of Enghien (no. 1011) and of Jacques Bertaut (no. 1009a) in the Louvre, and with the so-called "Duc de Bourbon" in the former J. P. Morgan collection.

Anne Dubois de Groër. Corneille de La Haye dit Corneille de Lyon. Paris, 1996, p. 194, no. 100, ill., believes the costume indicates a specific function or role for this "notable of Lyon" and dates the portrait between 1540–45.
