Acquired in July 2019 from a private collector living in Nancy, France, it is another work of well-known French miniaturist of the late 18th century, known as "Monogrammist D.M.".
According to Nathalie Lemoine-Bouchard the artist probably lived in Bordeaux and Paris. His clients were mainly residents of Bordeaux as well as military officers. He exhibited a miniature with a copy after Vigée-Lebrun's portrait of Duchesse d'Orléans at the Salon de Paris in 1789. He usually signed with "D.M." or "DM".
Works of his can be seen a.o. in Musée Lambinet and Versailles.
On the other hand, based on the high quality of his works the artist was not an amateur but surely one who gained academical training. The only french portrait miniaturist from the 1780/90s possessing a monogram DM (according to all possible artist dictionaries) is Silvestre-David Mirys (or Mieris). The latter was born into a Polish family in 1742 and died in Paris in 1810. From 1771 he studied at the Ecole Académie of Paris listed as "protége par M(onsieur) Vien" and "protége par Sa Majesté le roi de Pologne". He became known as portrait miniature painter (sic!) and engraver. His wife "Mme Mirys" was also a well-listed miniaturist in the mid 1790s, exponent of Salon de Paris (concerning both artists see our last additional image with clips from N. Lemoine-Bouchard).
