Two miniatures on ivory with portraits of a Napoleonic officer and his wife. The officer bears a Knight Cross of the Order of Reunion (founded by Napoleon I's brother, King of Holland, Louis Bonaparte on 12 December 1806). Besides that he wears an uniform of subaltern officer of 3rd (Dutch) Foot Grenadiers Regiment (3me Regiment (Holandais) Grenadiers a Pied) of the Napoleonic Middle Guards from the period of late 1811-early 1812 (CLICK HERE). It is difficult to say exactly what rank he has: captain or 1st or even 2nd lieutenant (there were no sous-lieutenants in the Guards).
Both miniatures demonstrate exceedingly high quality. On the verso of each portrait one finds an old label with the name of the probable author of both works - DROUIN. Surely the French miniaturist of that period was meant - Jean-Pierre Drouin (see also our comparison images nr.16-18).
Jean-Pierre Drouin (1782 Besanšon - 1861 ibd.) was a pupil of the Parisian Ecole-des-Beaux-Arts under sculptor Dejoux. He was a very skilful miniaturist (according to Schidlof) who was strongly influenced by works of Aubry.
