Set in its original golden frame (once - a section of a bangle, it was later re-worked into a pin), it is the earliest known portrait of celebrated French (then - a Republican and later - a 1st Empire) general, Joseph Hélie Désiré Perruquet de Montrichard (1760-1828). According to his uniform, he was portrayed sometime in the late period of Directory (1795-1799); we believe it was in 1796, promptly following his promotion to brigade general (see our images nr.5-6; for thus far the only other known representation of Perruquet de Montrichard, see our web #41544).

Clearly signed "Louis Adam f.", it is a work of well-known, late-18th-century Swiss miniaturist Louis-Alexandre Adam.

Louis-Alexandre Adam was born in ca. 1740 in Paris. From 1765 he was active in Geneva, Switzerland (in 1768, he took Swiss citizenship). He collaborated with J.-G- Viollier and J. Fallery and specialized in enamel miniatures intended for use in upscale bijouterie (sic!). Later, Adam worked together with his son - enamellist Isaak Adam. In the period of the 1st Empire, the artist returned to Paris, where he passed away in 1813.
