Clearly signed "menier /1829", this work is an extreme rarity (only one other work of its author - a genre oil on canvas painting - is discoverable on the Web; see our image nr.15). It is a large miniature on ivory by well-listed French artist of the 1st half of the 19th century, Louis Adolphe Menier.

Louis Adolphe Menier had been mentioned in various sources as the artist living in the 1820s-1850s interchangeably in Paris and small town Lisieux in Normandy (CLICK HERE), where he held a job of a conservator in a local museum. Menier's participated in exhibitions of Salon de Paris of 1833, 1834, 1837, 1840, and 1846, every time providing a different address either in Paris or Lisieux (see our images nr.8-13). He also regularly participated in regional exhibitions held in Caen, center of department Calvados, in which Lisieux is situated.
One of his works - genre painting "Les Orphelines" ("The Orphans") can still be viewed in the museum of Lisieux (see our image nr.14).
Nothing is known about Menier's possible teachers. However, the superior quality of the work, which is presented here, allows one to assume that he trained with one of the leading Parisian miniaturists of his time (Augustin?).
