François Eisen (1695-1778)-Attrib., "Miniature portrait of a noble lady", oil on copper, 1745/50
Price: ON REQUEST
(please note additional 10% tax applies for transactions concluded within the European Union)
According to dress and hairstyle of the young lady, this small supreme quality painting was executed sometime between 1745 and 1750. Although unsigned, it is, in our strong conviction (and 99% probability) an original work of very well known Parisian artist of the Rococo period, François Eisen. Our comparison (image nr.12) with another (signed) painting of this artist offers the best evidence in support of this attribution.
François Eisen (ca. 1695 Brussels - 1778 Paris) served his apprenticeship (1705-1706) with Pierre Roger in Valenciennes. In 1716 he was admitted master of the Confrérie de St Luc there. In the same year he married Marguerite Gainse; one of their seven children was artist Charles Dominique Joseph Eisen (1720-1778). François Eisen worked for the religious houses of Valenciennes, most notably for the Abbey of Vicoigne, making eight paintings (untraced) for the Refectory in 1729. He moved to Brussels c. 1732 and joined his son Charles Dominique in Paris ca. 1745. In later life he painted numerous genre pictures in a light-hearted Flemish manner (these were probably made specifically for dealers) and portraits.
