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).
