This miniature was acquired from the same estate and sale as the four miniatures in our lot # 36273. It is also of the same size as two of aforementioned miniatures and - what's most important - showing the same Mme Mazel in the same period. This exceedingly qualitative miniature on ivory is (as we are entirely certain) an absolutely authentic work of the same artist, the name of whom was already determined in our web # 36273 as Mme Aimée Zoe Lizinka de Mirbel (see also our image nr.6)
Mme Aimée Zoe Lizinka de Mirbel, nee Rue, (1796 Cherbourg – 1849 Paris) was daughter of a naval commissar. Showing increasing talent for painting already at an early age, she entered the studio of Augustin. In 1819 her highly-place friends arranged for her to paint the portrait of King Louis XVIII. Mirbel’s debut was a complete success. Louis XVIII appointed her The Official Painter to the King. She exhibited this portrait at the Salon, along with portraits of eleven other important court nobles.
In 1824, with King’s approval, she married the botanist Charles Francois Brisseau de Mirbel. From that point on she always appeared under her married name at the Salon. In 1827 she painted the portrait of Charles X, and in 1839 – that of Duke of Orleans.
Right up to the end of her career (she was a victim of the cholera epidemic of 1849) her fame did nothing but increase, and she may be considered as one of the most sought after and feted miniaturists of her period.
Amongst the pupils of Augustin, she was undoubtedly the artist who had the most personality. Almost all the miniaturists who worked in France around the mid-19th century were pupils of Mme de Mirbel.
