Clergyman #3


from "Le ciel" by A. Berget (1923).
Jean Felix Picard (21/7/1620-1682) seems a probable candidate for this man of the cloth. As there are only three clergymen mentioned as founding members (Picard, Mariotte and Du Hamel) and Duhamel is identified as the man in front, it is only by exclusion and a certain likeness to the portrait shown above, that I come to this identification. Again the age (46) seems about right for this man.

As I learned on 29 May 2013 the above picture is not a portrait of Jean Felix Picard but of Johan Andreas Piccart (2/6/1620-17/4/1666)
