Nicolas François Dun (1764 Luneville - 1832 Naples) was born into family of a musician working at the Lorraine Court in Luneville. It is unknown, where or with whom he studied, but in 1790 one could find him in Naples, where Dun belonged to the inner circle of friends of famous Lady Hamilton, wife of British ambassador, who was living in this city at the time. It was in her house that the artist made acquaintances with Goethe, Hackert, Angelika Kauffmann, Fueger, Mme Vigée-Le Brun, etc. He soon became a court portrait miniature painter, proceeding to portray all royalties of Naples of the following forty years, beginning with Bourbons, then family of Murat, and finally, Bourbons again. In the Period of Restoration (after the end of Napoleonic Era) he often portrayed members of the Russian and Austrian aristocracy staying in Naples (among his known miniatures are portraits of Comte and Comtess Orlov (1817), Prince Nikolaus Palffy, Prince Labanov, Prince Dolgorukov, etc.).
