Miniature portrait of a young aristocrat, painted (judging by sitter's hairstyle and attire) between 1795-1800 by the well-known French miniaturist Charles-Joseph de la Celle, Chevalier de Chateaubourg.

Until today there was a quite confusion in biographical information concerning the French miniaturist Charles-Joseph de la Celle, Chevalier de Chateaubourg (1758 Nantes - 1837 ibidem). A number of sources say that the artist lived in St. Petersburg from 1800 to 1805, from where he made trips to Tver and Moscow. Also the sources say that his sitters of this Russian period were exclusively member of high artistocracy and royalties.

An article by the Russian art historian Michael Asvarishch published in 2012 under the title "Emmanuel de la Selle, Chevalier de Chateaubourg (1762-1806)" is drawing a line between two artists bearing the same surname, one of whom really stayed in Russia and the other one did not. In his article (see our image nr. 7) Mr. Asvarishch tells about two brothers - Emmanuel de la Selle, Chevalier de Chateaubourg (1762-1806) and his elder brother (so Asvarishch; after a close web research we think they were cousins) Charles-Joseph de la Celle, Chevalier de Chateaubourg. According to the logic of Mr. Avarishch (which we share entirely!) the here presented miniature was painted by Chateaubourg the Elder.

Well, Charles-Joseph de la Celle, Chevalier de Chateaubourg was born in 1758 in Rennes, France (and not in Nantes, as say some sources). Unlike his cousin, the miniaturist Emmanuel, he remained in the revolutionary France. Thanks to protection of General L.L. Hoche, who hired him as his private secretary, he survived the Terror in his hometown Rennes. His first known miniature is dated 1795 and was created in Nantes. Neil Jaffares says in his dictionary of pastelists (see image nr. 8) that he studied under Jean-Baptiste Isabey. In 1804, 1808 and 1812 he exhibited his works at the Salon de Paris (for the last one he presented the portraits of his children). Around 1806 he settled in Nantes, where he received an award for one of his works in 1825. In 1837 he passed away in Nantes. There are about two dozen of miniatures signed by him (Avarishch demonstrates the signature on our miniature and shows its difference from the usual signature (shown at the same page) of cousin Emmanuel ("Russian" Chateaubourg).
