20 years ago, Frederick Wright bought a painting at a garage sale in Indiana because it reminded him of a character in the British sitcom "Are You Being Served?" He has since found out that the portrait is a French oil painting that dates to 1573.
The portrait is signed by Francois Quesnel, the son of a French painter born in Scotland who became a court painter in France under Catherine de Medici. One of his paintings hangs in the Louvre. He also made tapestries, coins, maps, and altar pieces.
It is not known who the man in the portrait is.
