Jean-Baptiste Solignac was born in Millau in 1773. He began his very successful military career in 1791. He fought in the Italian army, distinguished himself at the siege of Danzig and at the Battle of Vimeiro (Portugal) and then in Spain. He was appointed Brigadier General in 1799 and Division General in 1808. In 1809, he became Baron of the Empire. His name appears among those of the 660 heroes of the Revolution and the Empire engraved on the pillars of the Arc de Triomphe. His wife Madeleine-Sophie Chamiot-Aventurier was Marshal Jourdan's niece, the famous hero of the Revolutionary and Empire Wars.

According to Commandant Henri Lachouque, author of La vie militaire du général Baron Solignac (1773-1850), Robert Lefèvre painted the portrait of Baroness Solignac and her eldest son while she was staying in Paris in 1809. Lefèvre was then at the height of his fame, having painted 'Madame Mère', Napoleon's mother, in 1806, as well as his sister Princess Pauline Borghese. The high quality of the present painting reflects Lefèvre's talent as a portrait painter. The portrait of the Baron, General Solignac, with his eldest daughter, is later. Henri Lachouque dates it to 1815, when the Baron had just been removed from active service. The painting's quality is less consistent than in the portrait of his wife, and was probably painted by Lefèvre and his workshop.
