Catalogue Note

Born at Sèvres, Le Guay was the son of the porcelain painter Étienne Henri Le Guay.
He was employed as a painter at both Sèvres and Dihl and Guérhard; a Parisian firm, established in 1781, which enjoyed the protection of the Duc D'Angouleme and was celebrated for its exceedingly high quality.

This fine and large-scale portrait is signed and inscribed: manifre de Dihl & Gand was painted in circa 1801.
