Lot 0043
A beautifully executed miniature portrait painting, on natural organic wafer, signed and dated, lower left, "Legenvre 1813". The sitter is a nice looking young gentleman with curly hair and hazel eyes, wearing a dark blue coat, white shirt and ascot, and pink edged vest.
Condition is excellent, with no cracks, bowing, or restoration. A popular miniature painting format of the time was round, and it was not uncommon for the artist to do the painting on a rectangular wafer, and then do "artist joins", continuing the background onto card or paper to achieve the desired format, as is the case with the painting here. The diameter of this gem is 2 7/8".
Note: Little seems to be known of the French painter Legenvre, other than that he was well thought of and exhibited at the Salon de Paris between 1821 and 1824.
