Claude François Guilleaumeau de Fréval (1745-1770) was a mathematician, traveler and author. He wears the robes of a conseiller in the Parlement of Paris. Although he died the year this bust was made, it is likely to be a portrait from life. Gois, who had trained in Paris and Rome, became a full member of the French Academie royale in 1770.
