Catalogue Note

Painted one year after the beginning of the French Revolution, we see here a gentleman who was active as a revolutionary, possibly Pierre de Villeroy.

Born in London in 1744, Ménageot was apprenticed to both Joseph-Marie Vien (1716-1809) and François Boucher (1703-1770). He later won the Prix de Rome and was at the French Academy in Rome from 1769 to 1774. The Académie Royale in Paris accorded Ménageot as a history painter in 1777 and his works were highly appreciated at the Salon.
