This work was executed (according to sitter's dress and hairstyle) in the mid-1800s by well-known French portraitist (and miniaturist!) Joseph Boze. Acquired from the same source as our web #41953, it is a superior quality miniature portrait of Gerrit van Houten (b. 1774), Burgomaster of Dutch town Amersfoort (CLICK HERE) is the artist's own replica of his miniature in collection of Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam (see our images nr.7-8; the museum's version is accompanied by a portrait of Mme Houten).

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.
After Napoleon's overthrow he returned to the Court, where he proceeded to work for Louis XVIII. For this, in 1816, he received pension and was ennobled to count. In 1817, for the last time, he exhibited at the Parisian Salon.
Works of Joseph Boze are on view in most esteemed museum collections of France (among others, at the Louvre) and worldwide.

Our images nr.9-11 show several miniatures of Joseph Boze that were offered at the international art auction market in the last years.
