Christiaan Huygens was one of the youngest members and a key figure in the Académie des Sciences. It was therefor partly guesswork, partly the location next to Cassini and partly a likeness to the Netscher picture that lead me to this identification. A final clue was Huygens' right hand that points to the clock in the background.
