Before this charming painting resurfaced at the sale of the French auction house "Piasa", Paris (28 November 2012, lot 209) for the last time in reference literature it was mentioned in 1927 - in the sale catalogue of auctioneers "Mes. Baudoin et Tartavel" (sale took place in Parisian "Hotel Druot" on 29 -30 June 1927, this painting was offered under lot 43 as "Louis-Leopold Boilly").
And truely - besides typical for portrait works of Boilly size of 22,2 x 17,3 cm the painting shows absolutely all stylistic criteria of latter's similar creations (for comparison see our images nr.6-14).
Moreover, in published in late 2019 first catalogue raisonee of Boilly we see this painting (or author's own replica-?) with notice "whereabouts unknown" (see our image nr.15).
Louis-Leopold Boilly (1761 La Bassée - 1845) was a French painter. A number of his paintings vividly document the French middle-class social life of his time.
Boilly was born in La Bassée in northern France but moved to Arras at the age of seventeen to receive instruction in "trompe l'oeil" painting from Dominique Doncre (1743-1820). Seven years later Boilly moved to Paris where he exhibited in the Salon between 1791 and 1824 - receiving a gold medal in 1804.
In 1794, Boilly was condemned by the Comite de Salut Public, at the height of Terror, for the erotic undertones of his work. This offence was remedied by an eleventh-hour discovery in his home of the more patriotic Triumph of Marat (Musee des Beaux Arts, Lille) which saved him from serious penalties.
Boilly's early works tended towards a preference for amorous and moralising subjects. The Suitor's Gift is comparable to much of his work in the 1790's. His small-scale paintings with carefully mannered colouring and precise detailing recalled the work of Dutch seventeenth-century genre painters such as Gabriel Metsu (1629-1667), Willem van Mieris and Gerard ter Borch (1617-1681), of whose work Boilly owned an important collection. After 1794, Boilly began to produce far more crowded compositions that which serve as social chronicals. Boilly was also well respected for his portraiture, producing many portraits of the middle classes and other famous contemporaries.
