This work was made shortly after the sitter's release from several-months-long prison sentence. It is a miniature portrait of one of France's leading representatives of the French political and social movement of the 1st half of the 19th century, which was inspired by ideas of Claude Henri de Rouveroy, comte de Saint-Simon (1760-1805) and called "Saint-Simonianism" (see our image nr.8).
The name of the depicted man is Charles (Charles Honore Constant) Baron Duveyrier. He was born on April 12, 1803 in Montpellier as a son of the First President of the town's Royal Court. He received a good education and - already as a 23-year-old - published his first book.
In the late 1828, he joined Saint-Simonians and became a significant person in that circle.
On January 12, 1832, he published an article "De la Femme" that contained certain ideas that were too revolutionary for his time. Shortly thereafter, he and his comrades Enfantin and Chevalier were jailed, and the movement dispersed.
After his release from prison, Charles Duveyrier began (like his elder half-brother, dramatist Anne-Honore-Joseph Duveyrier, called "Mélesville") to write librettos and enjoyed a great success with it. He died on November 10, 1866.
For additional information about him, see our images nr.9-10.
According to the authentic, old legend on verso of the miniature (among others, it reads "par J. Vernet 1833"), it is a work of well-known Parisian miniaturist Jules Vernet.
Jules Vernet (1792 Paris - 1843 ibidem) specialized in miniatures. He exhibited at the Salon of Paris from 1812 to 1843. The greater part of his clientele seems to have consisted of actors and actresses. His close relations, probably his brother and the latter's wife, whose portraits in watercolour Vernet showed at the Salon of 1840, were dramatic writers in Paris. In 1834 (sic!) he obtained a third class medal. Schidlof writes: "The works of Vernet are not all of the same value, but in the best works he almost succeeds in equalling Aubry. His technique moreover resembles the pupils of the latter."
