This miniature on ivory of superior quality, executed (according to sitter's dress and hairstyle) in the early 1830s is a typical work of well-known Franco-English artist Simon Jacques Rochard (our comparison image nr. 7-10 convincingly confirm latter's authorship).
While still a child, Simon Jacques Rochard (1788 Paris - 1872 Brussels) drew crayon portraits in order to support his widowed mother and his twelve siblings. He studied engraving under Ransonnette senior and Desnoyers, and miniature painting under Mlle. Bonnieu, L.F. Aubry, and was said to have also studied under Isabey and J.F.L. Mérimée. He entered the Academie des Beaux-Arts in Paris on the 16th of November 1813.
Rochard copied miniatures for Augustin. In 1815 he left for Brussels to escape conscription. He sketched Wellington, 13 June 1815; the Duke of Richmond also sat for him in Brussels. In 1816 Rochard arrived in London with introduction letters from the Duke of Richmond and Lady Caroline Lamb. He became popular and worked for distinguished clientele; painted Princess Charlotte, the Duke of Devonshire, etc.; exhibited at the Royal Academy, British Institution, Society of British Artists, etc. between 1816 and 1845.
The artist painted chiefly miniatures, but also executed engravings and pictures in oil. His work was influenced by that of Reynolds and Lawrence. He knew Wilkie and Delacroix. He became wealthy and collected Old Masters. In 1846 he settled in Brussels and exhibited in the Brussels Salon.
Rochard was nearly ruined by the failure of Moore's Bank, and died a few days later, on the 13th of June 1872.
Daphne Foskett says further: "..he was an excellent miniaturist.." Examples of his work may be seen at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, as well as at the Louvre and other esteemed international museums.
