Offered here large miniature on ivory is a replica of the watercolor portrait, which also happens to be in our possession - see our web #29400. It is a portrait of Ms. Henriette Heigel, daughter of well-known Parisian miniaturist of Bavarian descent Josef Heigel (CLICK HERE FOR WORKS OF THIS ARTIST IN OUR POSSESSION) and younger sister of Franz Napoleon Heigel - the author of our web #29400).
Franz Napoleon Heigel was born in Paris in 1813 as son of the German-born portrait miniaturist Joseph Heigel and his French wife Josephine Catherine Hypolytha Heigel, née Rabelot.
In 1819 the family moved to Munich where little Franz Napoleon at first studied with his father and from the summer of 1827 began his studies at the Munich Academy of Fine Art. However, he returned to Paris already in the second half of 1828 where he spent the next several years. He entered the studio of famous Parisian miniaturist Jean-Urbain Guerin and in parallel took lessons with latter's colleagues Jean-Baptiste Jacques Augustin and Jean-Baptiste Isabey. During this Parisian period he repeatedly portrayed his older sister Henriette Heigel (1806-1854), a miniaturist herself (two of her portraits are also in our possession!).
In 1831 he debuted as exponent showing several portrait miniatures at the Salon de Paris. He also participated at the Salons of 1832, 1833 and 1835.
Until 1833 he lived with his father in rue Joubert 5, Paris but already had his own apartment in rue Caumartin 3 by 1835. In the same period he spent several months in the French provinces (Lyon, Beaujolais, Normandy). In 1835 (according to Nagler) he returned to Munich where he lived (with short interruptions, i.e. trips to Paris and Italy) until his death in 1888.
In Munich he made a brilliant career, he became a court artist and drawing teacher of the King's daughters.
Schidlof writes: "…F.N. Heigel was an excellent miniaturist. His portraits in watercolour are drawn in pencil in a very precise way, even in the slightest details. It is sometimes difficult to distinguish the works of his and his father."
