Offered here is a large and very qualitative miniature portrait of a middle-aged French gentleman wearing a winter coat trimmed with fur (the so-called "shuba", this fashion piece was highly popular in Napoleonic epoch). His Chevalier cross of the Order of Legion of Honor (or, to be more precize, its "4th" model introduced in 1808) offers the timeframe of this portrait's execution - 1808-1814.
Our friend, world's best specialist in portrait miniatures Dr. Bodo Hofstetter provided us with a lithograph of the same subject (see our image nr.6). The latter is a contemporary reproduction of painted in 1809 by Robert Lefevre (1755-1830) oil portrait. The sitter's name was Andre Gretry (1741-1813) and he was a very well-known French composer (see our image nr.8 with his biography). The original portrait of his by Lefevre is on display in Musee Gretry, Liege/Belgium (see our image nr.7).
Moreover, in our extensive collection of miniatures there is another, much earlier portrait of this man - see our web # 41230 !
