Portrait of the general Elzeard Auguste Cousin de Dommartin (1767-1799), whose name is among the six hundred others listed on the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.
Dommartin was probably best remembered as the commander of Napoleon's artillery in Egypt, commissioned in 1785, served at Toulon and in Italy, and was appointed commander of the artillery of the Army of Rhine in 1797. Unwittingly, he played a part in Napoleon's rise to fame: as a captain he had commanded the artillery at Toulon until seriously wounded and it was by chance that Napoleon was in the area at the time and had the influence to be appointed in Dommartin's stead. In the East, Dommartin conducted the sieges of El Arish and Acre, but died on 9/07/1799 from blood poisoning after being wounded in a skirmish.
Our additional image shows a miniature of Jean-Paptiste Soyer, who was born in 1765 in Nancy and was active in Nancy and Paris. Is it our artist?
Provenance: famous Parisian collection Bernard-Franck.
Bernard-Franck was a veteran of the 1870 Franco-Prussian War, who later in life became a wealthy manufacturer of military equipment. He had a very important collection of paintings and works of art from the Napoleonic Epoch (see our second additional image).
