Description
English: The King of Naples is standing upright, draped in a sumptuous cloak lined with ermine. He holds in his right hand the black velvet cap adorned with white feathers which every person in charge of the court must wear. Joachim Murat wears the sword at his waist and holds the scepter with his left hand. The royal crown is placed on a cushion at its sides. Another version exists with a notable variant: a gilded military helmet decorated with white feathers placed on the piece of furniture on the left. This same helmet was to appear originally on the present painting and it is probably still in place, masked by a repainted, perhaps made by Étienne-François Haro at the request of the family, during the restoration of 1867. Étienne-François Haro (1827-1897) and his son Henri Haro (1855-1911) were famous merchants of color, experts, restorers and merchants of paintings, but also painters themselves.
Français : Le roi de Naples est debout, en pied, drapé dans un somptueux manteau doublé d’hermine. Il tient de sa main droite la toque de velours noir ornée de plumes blanches que toute personne ayant charge à la cour doit porter. Joachim Murat porte l’épée à la ceinture et tient le sceptre de la main gauche. La couronne royale est posée sur un coussin à ses côtés. Une autre version existe avec une variante notable : un casque militaire doré et orné de plumes blanches posé sur le meuble à gauche. Ce même casque devait figurer à l'origine sur le présent tableau et il est probablement toujours en place, masqué par un repeint, peut-être effectué par Étienne-François Haro à la demande de la famille, lors de la restauration de 1867. Étienne-François Haro (1827-1897) et son fils Henri Haro (1855-1911) étaient de célèbres marchands de couleurs, experts, restaurateurs et marchands de tableaux, mais aussi peintres eux-mêmes.
