Until very recently, biographical information about the female French miniaturist Mme Jeanne Doucet de Suriny (and not Surigny - see below) was based on articles in dictionaries of Schidlof, Saur and Lemoine-Bouchard. In his new book about portrait miniatures in Museum Liaunig (Neuhaus, Carinthia/Austria) which was published in 2015, our friend and world-best specialist in portrait miniatures Dr. Bodo Hofstetter (Switzerland) provides the following information about this woman (see our image nr.8): Jeanne Marie Glaesner was born on July 24th 1762 as a daughter of Jacques Glaesner and Claudine Lenoir. She had one sister Marie Anne who married Genovese clock-maker Pierre-Françoi Moricand. On July 24th 1788, her 26th birthday, Jeanne Marie married the 13 years her senior Parisian banker Raphaël-Pierre Doucet de Suriny (1749-1802; the latter was shortly imprisoned during the French Revolution). Widowed since 1802, Jeanne Marie dies childless in the age of 61 in Paris on October 18th 1823. There are several known early miniatures of her with the signature "Mlle Glaesner". After here marriage in 1788 she signed with "Madame de Suriny", "Mme de Suriny", "Madame Doucet", "Mme Doucet" and in the period of the Regime of Terror (1793-1795) with "Cit. Doucet" (for "Citoyenne (citizen) Doucet"). After the end of this period she returned to her previous signature "Madame (Mme) Doucet".
