Museum's file, December 2012:
Charles-Roger, prince de Bauffremont, maréchal de camp des armées du Roi (1713-1795), served a military career first in the army of Lorraine, and then of France. He gave up his regiment in 1773 and became an habitué of the Salons. The Bauffremonts were the leading family of Franche-Comté, several of whom were portrayed by Breton, the leading sculptor of Besançon.
