Nicolas Henri Jacob (1782 Paris - 1871 Paris) was a pupil of the great Jacques Louis David; he also studied under Antoine Leonard du Pasquier and sculptor Jean Jacques Morgan. He soon became a well known painter of historical subjects and portraits. Jacob debuted as exponent at the 1802 Salon de Paris; in 1805 he became a court painter of Napoleon I' adoptive son and Viceroy of Italy, Eugene de Beauharnais. He worked for the latter in Italy (Milan) until 1814. After the fall of Napoleon he returned to France and became a master of drawing at the Veterenary School of Maisons-Alfort by Paris - a post, which he occupied for fifteen years. Afterwards he went to Paris, where he also taught drawing and worked as a lithographer. He exhibited at the Salon until 1865, showing numerous portraits done in pencil or pastel and sometimes in colored crayons. The catalogues of the Salon seem to mention neither his miniatures, nor portraits in watercolor. However (according to Schidlof), he excelled in this field… He showed a talent well above the average; painted very finely, using a "pointillé", which was hardly visible…
