    Charles-François Pinceloup de la Grange

    https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Perronneau,_Jean-Baptiste_-_Charles-Fran%C3%A7ois_Pinceloup_de_la_Grange_-_Google_Art_Project.jpg 

    (best viewed by Google Chrome which can automatically translate most pages as necessary) has info and links that point to info about this roughly B2 paper size painting. The Summary inset image accesses the much larger different coloration image currently shown online by the museum; perhaps the strip is a small version of its predecessor.
