Pierre-Narcisse Guérin (Paris, May 13, 1774 - Rome, July 6, 1833) was a French painter. After a trip to Italy began in 1797 following the victory of the coveted "prix de Rome", returned to Paris in 1810, where he opened a studio that soon became well known and frequented, and from which came the most ardent romantic painters: Théodore Géricault, Ary Scheffer, Léon Cogniet, Victor Orsel, Paul Huet, Eugène Delacroix, Édouard Cibot. Professor at the School of Fine Arts in 1814, member of the Academy of Fine Arts of France in 1815, director of the Academy of France in Rome from 1818 to 1828, Guérin had a very brilliant career.

François Bouchot (Paris, November 29, 1800 - Paris, February 7, 1842) was a French painter and engraver. He did not have a long life, but distinguished himself for the beautiful portraits and historical subjects, particularly those relating to the Napoleonic epic. He studied drawing and engraving technique with Richomme, then became a favorite pupil of Jean-Baptiste Regnault and then Guillaume Lethière. He won the Prix de Rome in 1823. Returned a year later in France, began to exhibit at the Salon from the end of 1824, and never stopped exhibiting as long as he lived. He produced several works on commission from King Louis-Philippe, including, in 1837, The Battle of Zurich on September 25, 1799, destined for the Battle Gallery of the Chateau de Versailles. He was also the author of the painting on the coup d'état of 18 Brumaire, which represents Bonaparte at the Council of Five Hundred of Saint-Cloud, on November 10, 1799. This work is now exhibited at the Museum of the Castle of Versailles. Famous is the portrait that he made of the famous soprano Maria Garcia, otherwise known as La Malibran or Maria Malibran, while playing Desdemona in Rossini's Otello, in 1834, just two years before the great singer died: the canvas is preserved in the Museum of Romantic Life in Paris. In 1836, the architect Alphonse de Gisors, in charge of the arrangement of the chapel of the Luxembourg Palace, entrusted him with the frescoes of the chapel, but Bouchot died before the opening of the site, in 1842, at the age of 42 years.

Rare.
