This miniature of superior quality by famous, turn of 19th century, French artist Joseph Boze was acquired from a private collection in Dutch town Goes (situated 120 km from Amsterdam). Remainder of an old label on verso (see image nr.7) provides name of the depicted young man - "Laurent Theodore Nepveu". As show our images nr.14-18 this Dutch nobleman was a son of well-known Utrech politician Laurens Johannes Nepveu and grandson of Governor of Dutch colony Suriname Jan Nepveu. He was born in 1782 in Utrecht and died on 14th November 1839 in Paris. Like his father he was a well-known Utrecht politician (alderman) and in 1806-1810 member of parliiament of the Netherlands. He was also an amateur artist and was taught by C. van Geelen (drawing) and B. van Straaten (painting).
This facts (together with our web # 41971) provide (till today unknown!) information that author of this miniature, famous French portraitist Joseph Boze visited Netherlands in the mid-1800s (then Napoleonic Kingdom of Holland).
Until today very little is known of Boze's activity between 1803-1813.

Joseph Boze, well-known French portrait painter, miniaturist and pastelist, was born on the 6th of February 1745 in Martigues, Bouiches-du-Rhöne, and died in Paris on the 17th of January 1826. At the age of 17, he began his art studies at the Marseilles School of Drawing and Painting; then, from 1778, he probably studied under Maurice Quentin in Paris. From 1782, he was successfully exhibiting at the Parisian Salon de la Correspondance. From 1783, he was also active as a court artist: he painted portraits of King Louis XVI, Queen Marie-Antoinette, as well as other members of the Royal Family. Despite his success at the Court, Joseph Boze welcomed the Revolution. He portrayed Mirabeau, La Fayette, Robespierre, Barnave, Marat (April 1793), and Desmoulins. Nevertheless, in the beginning of 1793, he was public ally proclaimed by Jacque-Louis David as king's loyalist. On the 15th of October 1793, called to be whiteness in a lawsuit against Marie-Antoinette, Boze remained neutral. On the next day, he was arrested and incarcerated: at first in Luxembourg, and, then, in the Conciergerie for 11 months. In 1800, together with Robert Lefevre and Carle Vernet, he painted a double portrait of Napoleon Bonaparte and General Berthier in the battle of Marengo.
After Napoleon's overthrow he returned to the Court, where he proceeded to work for Louis XVIII. For this, in 1816, he received pension and was ennobled to count. In 1817, for the last time, he exhibited at the Parisian Salon.
Works of Joseph Boze are on view in most esteemed museum collections of France (among others, at the Louvre) and worldwide.
