Offered here is a very good quality, enamel miniature with portrait of a middle-aged gentleman with red sash of a Commander of French Military Order of St Louis. He is portrayed pointing with finger at a plan of fortifications. It is with great likelihood a work of well-known French miniaturist (enamellist) of late 18th century, Nicolas André Courtois (for comparison, see our images nr.8-13).

Nicolas-André Courtois (1734 Paris - 1806 Paris) was primarily a painter on enamel, yet also painted portraits in oils, pastel, as well as miniatures on ivory. In 1770 he became a member of the Academy; exhibited at the Salon between 1771 and 1777. In 1782 Courtois was appointed Painter to the King. Schidlof considers him one of the best French painters on enamel of his period.

Provenance: private collection, France
