On view here is a large miniature portrait of the famous French surgeon, Professor Baron Antoine Dubois (1756-1837, CLICK HERE. It is a masterful copy after the famous oil painting by Francois Gerard in the Museum "Chateaux de Malmaison" (see our image nr.12).

Authentic legend on verso informs us that it was a gift presented in January 1843 to Dubois' pupil, "medecin-en-chef" of military medicinal bath in Bourbonne-les-Bains, department Haute-Marnr, Dr. Antoine Francois Andre Therrin (Therin) by Dubois' daughter Clementine and her husband, former pharmacist of Napoleon I, Charles Felix Cadet de Gassicourt (see images nr.7-8).

The artist's signature "Mourlan-Desaugiers" means obviously we are dealing either with a work of a female artist with double (married!) name or with a collective work of two artists.
We have to note that "Mourlan" was the name of well-known Parisian portrait miniaturist and lithographer Pierre Joseph Hippolyte Alexandre Mourlan (1789-1860). On another hand "Desaugiers" was the name of well-known French composer, dramatist, and songwriter Marc-Antoine Madeleine Désaugiers (1772-1827). Both men were probably acquainted with each other - in ca. 1810 Mourlan lithographed (after oil painting by L. Reisner) portrait of Desaugiers (see image 10).On another hand among exponents of Salon de Paris, in 1840s there was female portraitist Eugenie Desaugiers, nee Duboys. Was she a relative of (never married) Marc-Antoine Desaugiers? Was she co-laborator (pupil?) of miniaturist Mourlan? Or even she married Mourlan after the death of her first husband, certain Monsieur Desaugiers?
All these questions remain still unreplied...
