Salomon-Guillaume Counis was born in 1785 in Geneva and died in 1859 in Florence. He was a son of engraver of Saxonian descent by the name Johann Michael (Jean Michel) Counis. In about 1800, Salomon-Guillaume began studying enamel painting. In 1806, having secured himself with a recommendation letter of his uncle - Swiss artist Wolfgang Adam Toepffer - he came to Paris and was received at the studio of Anne-Louis Girodet. In 1810, the newly instated Grand Duchess of Tuscany and sister of Napoleon I - Elisa Bonaparte - invited Counis to Florence. In 1811, she appointed him her court enamel miniaturist. In 1812 and 1817 he won golden medals of the Salon de Paris. After the end of the 1st Empire, Counis returned to Geneva, yet went back to Paris as soon as 1816.
