This round box was acquired from a private French collection. Made of tortoiseshell with gilt-metal mounting, it houses good quality miniature portrait of a young lady (her dress and hairstyle speak for 1790s)) wearing a headband adorned with roses, with distant landscape in the background.
Our friend, world's best specialist in portrait miniatures Dr. Bodo Hofstetter informed us that this portrait is in reality a copy after executed in ca.1795, signed miniature by well-known, turn of 19th century French artist Jacques-Antoine-Marie Lemoine in the Cincinnati Art Museum, USA (see our image nr.10).
Jacques-Antoine-Marie Lemoine (1751 Rouen - 1824 Paris) declined to follow his father's precedent in becoming a notary and instead began study at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Rouen. Having moved to Paris by 1772, he studied under Jean-Jacques Lagrenée (1737-1821) and Maurice-Quentin de la Tour (1704-1788). He was attracted to Parisian theater and music, and early in his career often portrayed actors, singers, and musicians, using pastel and chalk. He also worked in oil, watercolor, and porcelain. In the late 1770s or early 1780s, he made sketches for fashion plates.
In 1783 Lemoine married the artist Agathe-Francoise Bonvallet. He began his work as a miniaturist in the mid-1780s. His early miniatures are influenced by the "free and painterly technique" of Pierre-Adolphe Hall. In 1785 he painted Louise Benoit Zamor, the page of Madame Du Barry and later a revolutionary. This portrait is the only piece of evidence of Zamor's African origin.
Lemoine invented a perspective easel for use in landscape painting, and another device to help create likeness in portraiture. He also collected texts on geometry and perspective in relation to design and painting.
Lemoine's wife died in 1794, and he returned to Rouen, where he was appointed Professor of Drawing at the École de Marine in 1799. After 1798 he produced fewer works, but kept a pied-á-terre in Paris and continued to exhibit at the Salon through 1817. He died at his home in Paris and bequeathed his manuscript collection to the state.
