THE SELLER WILL COVER SHIPPING WITH REGULAR MAIL FOR THIS ITEM!

Executed in the early period of the 1st Empire (according to sitter's hairstyle and uniform's regulation) it is a work of one of the leading French miniaturists of that period, Jean Urbain Guerin. It shows a relatively young captain (one silver-colored epaulette with thin fringes on his left shoulder) of one of the following four Napoleonic dragoon regiments (due to the discolored yellow collar and revers): 19th, 21st, 22nd and 24th.
He is decorated with the Chevalier Cross of the Order of Legion of Honor established by Napoleon shortly before.

Jean Urbain Guerin (1760 Strassburg - 1836 Oberenheim, Alsace) received his first artistic training from his father Christophe Guerin. Afterwards he became a student of Regnault and David and, finally, of Isabey (regardless of the fact that the latter was 7 years younger than Guerin). David had great consideration for Guerin in spite of their very different political opinions. He was also greatly appreciated by Marie-Antoinette, whose portraits he executed, as well as those of Louis XVI. During the Revolution he had occasion to prove his gratitude to Marie-Antoinette. As a member of the Section of the Filles Saint-Thomas of the Garde Nationale, he was in the Tuileries on the 20th June 1792 and courageously protected the Queen. He was banished and only returned to Paris at the time of Consulate. It was at that time that he became a pupil of Isabey. Although he already was a perfect artist, one nevertheless feels the influence of Isabey in certain of his portrait miniatures.
In 1788, Guerin made his debut at the Salon with several miniatures and went on to show his works there regularly until 1827. From 1821 the artist lived in Obernay (Oberenheim) in Alsace.
