Catalogue Note

The attribution to Henri-François Riesener has been confirmed by Alexis Bordes who will include this painting in his forthcoming catalogue raisonné on the artist.

Henri-François Riesener was the son of the famous cabinet maker Jean-Henri Riesener, who emigrated from Germany to Paris and worked for a select clientele including Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.  Henri-François started his career as an apprentice to Vincent, and later moved to David's studio, where he learned the grand manner of history painting.   In his career, however, Riesener was renowned as a portrait, rather than a history, painter, and he remains one of the greatest portaitists to come out of David's studio.
