Portrait of François Bouchot (1800-1842) [Part I]

Another little treasure in the collection of the Munich’s Staatliche Graphische Sammlung is Winterhalter’s Portrait of François Bouchot (1800-1842) (1841, pencil on paper, 13.7 x 12.2 cm, Inv. No. 1940:12). Once again, I promised not to reproduce the actual drawing, so I am showing a lithograph by Emile Lassalle, courtesy of http://www.portraitindex.de/.

The portrait shows the forty-one-year-old artist at bust length, at full face, gazing at the viewer, his forehead resting on the palm of his left hand.

Drawn on 29 September 1841, the artist’s appearance, with a tired gaunt face and prominent shadows under his eyes, correspond with the contemporary descriptions of Bouchet during the last few months of his life.
