Boissier
Boissier, Portrait of a Young Man, 1802, Pastel signed and dated

$1,091.14

About

Boissier (painter and portraitist active at the end of the 18th century) Portrait of a young man Signed and dated "Boissier f(ecit) 1802" on the lower right Pastel on paper transfered on cardboard 37.5 x 29 cm In its original frame : 46 x 38 cm (damaged, some losses in the gilding of the frame as apparent on the photograph) If the author of this pastel and of an identified set of signed portraits by the same hand has for long identified as André-Claude Boissier (1760-1833), it was recently discussed. In his very interesting notice on the pastellist, Neil Jeffares author of an online "Dictionary of pastellist before 1800", suggests it could be a woman and not all André-Claude. In the same article are reproduced, portraits of the same style and quality as the one presented here. It's really intriguing. In fact a woman's touch could be quite perceptible in these portraits.
