This is the only known portrait by the artist, whose œuvre consists mainly of pastoral and mythological scenes. Born in Constantinople, Marie-Joseph Chénier was a politician, playwright and poet, of French and Greek origin. He specialised in historical subjects in revolutionary Paris. His best known work, Charles IX et la Saint Barthélémy, was first performed at the Théâtre-Français in 1789; its revolutionary zeal having resulted in the play being held back for nearly two years by the censor.
