This is Andrieu d'Andres, one of the brave burghers
of Calais immortalized by Auguste Rodin
in his famous sculpture. Here he's depicted
(in a separate study that stands in Rodin's garden)
thinking that he's going to a certain death at the hands
of King Edward III. In fact, all six were saved by
Edward's wife, Queen Philippa.
