In this miniature portrait, the sitter is wearing the uniform of a Napoleonic division general (he was promoted on August 10, 1804) and is decorated with the chest cross (we see only its red ribbon) and breast star of the Grande Aigle of Legion of Honor (awarded on August 10, 1804).He is the older brother of Napoleon I - Joseph Bonaparte. On March 30, 1806, he became the King of Naples and Two Sicilies; he remained in this function until June 6, 1808: on that day, Napoleon made him the King Jose I of Spain (his brother-in-law Joachim Murat replaced him in Naples). We are certain that this miniature was executed exactly in this Neapolitan (1806-1808) period of his.
