These two works are exceedingly qualitative, originally painted with watercolor on card in 1820 by former court artist of Empress Josephine, Auguste-Simon Garnerey and then replicated in technique of porcelain painting (probably in the very same year!) by Parisian female artist Mlle A. Leclerc. They show an unknown lady from the Parisian high society (surely a prominent socialite).
Such extremely rare possession of contemporary original and its copy is not new to our practice: we own another important pair - CLICK HERE TO SEE IT.

Auguste Simon Garnerey (Garneray) was a very well-known French painter and miniaturist of the turn of the 19th century. Pupil of his own father and J.B.Isabey, he began exhibiting his portraits, interiors and vignettes for contemporary novels in 1808 at the Salon de Paris. Having a very good reputation at the royal court, he was the royal painter of Queen Hortense and Duchess Berry. He worked also on commission to the Empresses Josefine and Marie Louise. In 1819 Garnerey was appointed costume designer of l'Opéra de Paris, l'Académie Royale, and Théâtre Italien in Paris. He was also active in this function at the Théâtre Francais and Théâtre l'Odeon.

Mlle Leclerc (according to recent research of Lemoine-Bouchard; see our image nr.22) was a French female artist, who until today is known through only one of her miniatures from a private collection that is showing a blond gentleman. This miniature is signed and dated "Mlle A. Leclerc 1820".

Our additional images show several other portrait works of Auguste Garnerey.
