Joseph Boze, well-known French portrait painter, miniaturist and pastelist, was born on the 6th of February 1745 in Martigues, Bouiches-du-Rhöne, and died in Paris on the 17th of January 1826. At the age of 17, he began his art studies at the Marseilles School of Drawing and Painting; then, from 1778, he probably studied under Maurice Quentin in Paris. From 1782, he was successfully exhibiting at the Parisian Salon de la Correspondance. From 1783, he was also active as a court artist: he painted portraits of King Louis XVI, Queen Marie-Antoinette, as well as other members of the Royal Family. Despite his success at the Court, Joseph Boze welcomed the Revolution. He portrayed Mirabeau, La Fayette, Robespierre, Barnave, Marat (April 1793), and Desmoulins. Nevertheless, in the beginning of 1793, he was public ally proclaimed by Jacque-Louis David as king's loyalist. On the 15th of October 1793, called to be whiteness in a lawsuit against Marie-Antoinette, Boze remained neutral. On the next day, he was arrested and incarcerated: at first in Luxembourg, and, then, in the Conciergerie for 11 months. In 1800, together with Robert Lefevre and Carle Vernet, he painted a double portrait of Napoleon Bonaparte and General Berthier in the battle of Marengo.
