Acquired from private collection in Dutch town Goes (120 km from Amsterdam) this miniature portrait of an elderly lady from late 1800s (according to her dress) strongly resembles works of the artist who from 1806 worked in Den Hague, at the court of King Louis (Napoleonic Kingdom of Holland) - Louis-Marie Autissier.
Louis Marie Autissier was born in 1772 in Vannes, Bretagne, and died in 1830 in Brussels. He began his art studies at the College de Marie under Vautin (drawing). From 1789, he was already himself a drawing teacher in Morlaix. He then two-years-long served in the military service, becoming thereafter a clerk at Bureau of Commandant of Rennes and a member of National Convent that sponsored his further studies. In 1795 Autissier moved to Paris, where he received a grant from Republic for studying at the Academy, as well as a scholarship for Italy.
Turmoil in the state administration led, however, to his move to Brussels, where he changed his first name to that of his father (Jean Francois; possibly fearful of being found under his real name - ?). In Brussels he was mainly active as portrait miniaturist, soon becoming a favorite artist of the high society. In 1806 he became a court artist of the Netherlands Royal Family (family of Napoleon's brother and King of the Netherlands Louis Bonaparte), for whom he produced a large number of portraits. In 1817 he portrayed King Wilhelm I of the Netherlands, as well as various Brusselian and Parisian courtiers and royalties (among others, King Louis XVIII of France, Princes Adelaide Eugenie Louise, Duke Wellington, etc.). From 1812 Autissier was a member of the Society of Arts in Gent. He also regularly exhibited his works in Parisian Salon (in sum 250 miniatures).
Works of L.M. Autissier belong to museum collections of Brussels, Vienna ("Albertina"), etc.
