André-Léon Larue (called Mansion) was born in Nancy in 1785 and died in 1843 in Paris. He was pupil of his father Jacques Larue and of Isabey. For some time he worked for the factory of Sevres. He exhibited at the Paris Salon from 1808 to 1834. Several times he went to London and exhibited there at the Royal Academy in 1829 and 1831. In 1822 appeared his work "Lettres sur la miniature", in French and in English. Schidlof says: ...Mansion counts amongst the best French miniaturists of the 19th century... he attains the same standard as Aubry, Jacques and Saint. The Wallace collection (London) houses six miniature portraits of young ladies by Mansion, all - of large (sic!) dimensions, on ivory and signed. These miniatures, Schidlof writes, "already had at the time they were painted a considerable success".
