This print shows Henriette Anne with Mary Charlotte Bond who was the daughter of Sir Thomas Bond, the man responsible for the financial accounts at the court of Henriette Anne’s mother, Henrietta Maria. According to tradition, Mary Charlotte was brought up at the French court by Henriette Anne. The flamboyance of the image reflects fashions at the Orléans court. It is likely that the building in the background is the Château of Saint-Cloud on the outskirts of Paris where Henriette Anne spent most of her time. The château was renovated extensively by the duke and duchess and they commissioned the artists Jean Nocret and Pierre Mignard to decorate the interior.
