This superior quality large miniature is another addition to our collection of works by well-known French, turn of the 19th century miniaturist Daniel Saint.

Daniel Saint (1778 Saint-Lô, France - 1847 Saint-Lô) was a pupil of Isabey, Regnault and Aubry. He specialized in miniatures and became Isabey's principal collaborator in execution of official portraits. He took part in most of Salons between the years 1804 and 1839, and obtained a 2nd class medal in 1806 and a 1st class - in 1808. On several occasions Saint did portraits of the Empress Josephine. Napoleon commissioned a portrait from him and sent it - adorned with diamonds worth 150000 francs - to Marie-Louise in Vienna. The emperor's decision to order a portrait from Saint was supposedly very much influenced by the fact that Napoleon saw and favoured another work by the artist, namely a miniature portrait of Prince Kourakine exhibited by Saint at the Salon of 1810. Saint was not only appreciated in the Empire period, but also became one of the most popular miniaturists under Charles X and Louis-Philippe, whose portraits he did on several occasions.
Schidlof says further: "...Saint may be considered as one of the greatest French miniaturists of the 19th century. He was very close to equalling Isabey and Augustin...".
