Salomon Guillaume Counis (1785–1859) initially studied enamelling for bijouterie in the city of his birth, Geneva, before moving to Paris in 1806 to work in the studio of Anne Louis Girodet. In 1810 he exhibited at the Salon for the first time – ‘Plusieurs portraits peints sur émail’ (Livret no. 1128) and ‘Portrait en émail de S.M. le Roi de Westphalie, d’après Gérard’ (Livret no. 226). Baron Gérard introduced him to Elisa Baciocchi, Napoléon's eldest sister, Grand Duchess of Tuscany, who invited him to Florence and appointed him painter to the court. After the fall of Napoléon, Counis moved to Geneva and later to Paris, where his patrons included the Duchess of Berry.
