According to the sitter's dress and hairstyle, this miniature portrait of Augusta, Princess of Bavaria, wife of Napoleon I' stepson Eugene de Beauharnais, was executed sometime between 1805 and 1807, i.e. briefly before or just after her wedding (January 14, 1806; it is also one of Augusta's earliest portraits!). She is depicted here wearing a Napolenic court dress with "honey-bee pattern" and Bavarian Ladies Order of St. Elisabeth (see our image nr.16).
Our images nr.8-15 show other portraits of this woman and offer her extensive biography.
Mlle Aimée Thibault (1780 Paris - 1868 Paris) first was a pupil of Augustin, then Le Guay and Saint. She debuted at the Salon de Paris in 1804 showing her miniatures there until 1810 (among others, an important miniature of the King of Rome painted from life).
She was very famous in the periods of the 1st Empire and Restoration. Percier, the architect of the Louvre, drew the frames of several of her miniatures (among others, for the portraits of Ferdinand VII, King of Spain and his wife, Maria Isabella Françoise). It is undoubtedly thanks to these two miniatures that Aimée Thibault was appointed miniature painter to the King of Spain in 1819.
Schidlof says further: "She was undoubtedly a miniaturist of quality, influenced by her master Saint…".
Works of this lady can be seen today at the Louvre, Museum of Army (Paris), Chateau Fontainebleau, museums of Bordeaux, Geneva, etc.
