Formerly in the collection of French actor Paul Bonifas (1902-1975; see our image nr.10), it is a round, high quality, miniature portrait of a young lady. She is dressed and hair-styled according to fashion of the ca. 1810. This portrait is with a very great possibility (see our comparison image nr.10 and our web # #40767) work of one of the best French miniaturists of early 19th century, Etienne Charles Le Guay.

Etienne Charles Le Guay or Leguay (1762 Sevres - 1846 Paris) was a son of a porcelain painter and gilder Etienne Henri Leguay. He studied under J.M. Vien and exhibited at the Salon from 1795 to 1819, showing miniatures on ivory and porcelain, as well as some mythological paintings.
From 1778 to 1785 he was a painter at the factory in Sevres, and later, for some time, a manager of the porcelain factory Dihl & Guerhard in Paris. Between 1808 and 1840 he again worked in Sevres. His three successive wives, Marie-Sophie Giguet (d. in 1801), Marie-Victoire Jaquotot (divorced in 1809), and Caroline de Courtin, were all his pupils and painted miniatures.
Schidlof writes:"Le Guay was one of the best miniaturists of his period, particularly good are his works of the beginning of the 19th century" (sic!). Works of Le Guay can be viewed at the Louvre, in Museum Carnavalet in Paris, in Museum of Manufactory Sevres, in Museum Angers, in Museum of Applied Arts in Vienna, etc.
His miniatures achieve very remarkable prices at the art auction market (see our additional images). Another one of our additional images shows a breakfast service decorated by Le Guay (Sevres porcelain).

1) French actor Paul Bonifas (see our image nr.11)
