Pierre Chasselat (1753 Paris - 1814 ibidem) was a very renowned portrait miniaturist and graphic artist in Paris in the late 18th and early 19th century. He was a pupil of Vien and exhibited his miniatures and drawings at the Paris Salon in 1793, 1798, 1806 and 1810. He was a "peintre en miniature des Mesdames de France", royal miniaturist who worked for Marie-Antoinette. Schidlof writes: "...he was an excellent draughtsman and a miniaturist of distinction. He is little known because his works are scarce, often unsigned and difficult to recognize since he changed his style several times... Certain works of his early period resemble and are mistaken for those of Pierre Adolphe Hall...".
We are very grateful to our friend and permanent adviser, well known uniformologist and author of numerous publications about Napoleonic Epoch, Dr. Dimitri Gorchkoff (Moscow) for generous help.
