Philibert de la Touche
 
Philibert de la Touche was a French fencing master of the 17th century having published in 1670 the smallsword treatise entitled "Les vrays principes de l'espée seule" - The true principles of the single smallsword - dedicated to the King of France Louis XIV. 

There is seemingly very little information on the man and the sole depiction is in the frontispiece of his treatise showcasing the master in his 40/50s.

Had a lot of fun with this one, quite tricky as well especially using this new painting method. Hope you guys like it and stay tuned for more smallsword masters to come! :)
