Pérignon, is not an unknown name to those used to paintings from the 18th and 19th centuries, since our artist's father and grandfather were themselves landscapers. Logically trained by his father Alexis-Nicolas Pérignon, the young painter will continue his training in the studio of Baron Gros. It is very quickly that he will find his capacities in the art of the portrait carrying out his career exclusively there. Exhibiting at the Salon in 1834, he carried his paintings there until the day before his death in 1882. He took on the responsibilities of director of the Dijon Museum of Fine Arts as well as of the city's fine arts school in 1856.

This portrait, which can only be from the full Napoleon III period, seduces by its simplicity. From the very academic pose of this young woman, to her very dark outfit, Pérignon here plays on the contrast created by the skin and the thin satin collar. This touch of central light, accentuated by the hands placed in semi-darkness, gives this portrait all the strength necessary to make it stand out among the creations of the 1860s.
