¤ Portrait gravé figurant Henri IV de profil d'après une calligraphie de Joseph Bernard (1740-1809) . Cette gravure s'inscrit dans la lignée des profils tirés du portrait de Joseph Bernard, diffusés par les marchands d'estampes et est à rapprocher de celui de Petit (Pau, musée national du Château, Inv. P. 584). "Bernard représente mieux que tout autre l’esthétique du renouveau de la calligraphie. Ses succès, précisément inscrits dans le temps, eurent une notable influence. Les grands, les souverains, les ministres populaires (comme Necker) figurent en bonne place dans ses ingénieuses compositions, mais on y trouve aussi des types de personnages (bourgeoise, dame de qualité) ainsi que des célébrités historiques. Henri IV, dont la mode ne cesse de croître depuis les succès de La Henriade de Voltaire et de La Partie de chasse de Henri IV de Collé, ne saurait être oublié, et Bernard ne néglige pas de livrer aux marchands d’estampes des profils du bon roi et de son ministre Sully. C’est ce que confirme la diffusion des gravures qui furent tirées du présent portrait, comme celle de Petit, qui « a été dirigée par l’auteur ».
