Catalogue Note

An old label on the reverse indicates that the painting was given by Robert to his close friend the painter François Dumont who was also in Rome in the 1780s. François Dumont (1751–1831) was one of the most important painters of portrait minatures of his time.  In 1784 he journeyed to Rome where he met Robert, returning after four years of study.  He was accepted as an Academician in 1788 and granted an apartment in the Louvre. He married the daughter of Antoine Vestier, the miniature painter, and had two sons, Aristide and Bias, both of whom became painters. The present picture was left to his son Bias after his death.  Another painting by Robert, bearing the same inscription on the reverse, was sold in these rooms on 26 January 2011, lot 15.
