Catalogue Note

Count Andre J. Mniszech (Wolyn 1823 - Paris 1905) moved to Paris in 1852. The student of Jean Gigoux and L. Cognieta, he established himself as the portraitist to the Polish emigré aristocracy in France. Very few of his paintings were exhibited, however several portraits were exhibited in Warsaw in 1885, Krakow in 1882, and 1896 and in Paris in 1888. His autoportrait was exhibited in Vienna after his death in 1915.

After the death of his wife Anna Potocka in 1885 and his son Léon in 1902, his collection was sold in 1910. A significant portion of the collection remains in private hands, the remainders are preserved in the museums of Lille, Besançon, Warsaw, Poznan and thirty portraits in the Pavlikovski collection in Warsaw.
