Charles-Joseph de la Celle, Chevalier de Chateaubourg (1758 Nantes - 1837 ibidem) was a brother-in-law of the famous French poet Chateaubriand. As a captain of Regiment "Prince de Conde" he emigrated in 1792 for two years to London, from 1794 till 1799 lived in Germany (1796 Ansbach, 1798/99 Berlin). First known miniature of his is dated 1794 (sic!). As a portrait miniaturist he traveled from Court to Court and portrayed the members of the local royal families. In 1800-1805 the artist lived in St. Petersburg where he was one of the most favorite portraitists. From St. Petersburg he made trips to Tver and Moscow. His sitters of this period were (as they were in Germany) exclusively members of high aristocracy and royalties. In 1806 he came back to his native Nantes and settled there. Although Chateaubourg was supposedly a pupil of Isabey, his name is to be found also among the pupils of Augustin (1812, 1813). Yet, his miniatures resemble neither Augustin's nor Isabey's.
Schidlof writes: "…in his early works of the 19th century there is a Nordic influence, a certain relationship with the miniatures of Stroehly and Grassi".
