"Miniature Portrait By Joseph Boze"
Diameter 5cm From childhood, Joseph Boze shows provisions for drawing and enters at 17 years old at the practical drawing school of Marseille. According to the biographer Volcy-Boze, he follows the teaching of Maurice Quentin de la Tour in Paris. Appointed patent painter of the war under Louis XVI, he made his career by making several portraits of members of the court including that of the king which will be interpreted in engraving by Jean-César Macret. During the Revolution, he painted several members of the Third Estate and of the convention, notably those of Mirabeau, Robespierre and Marat. After having testified during the trial in favor of Marie-Antoinette, he was arrested and was locked up at the Conciergerie. The fall of Robespierre saves him the scaffold. Upon his release, he left for Holland and then for England. He returned to Paris in 1798 and continued his career until 1826, the date of his death
