Portrait of Jacques Necker
Information about author
The miniature replicates an oil portrait by Joseph-Siffred Duplessis (1781), which is stored in Versailles. Jacques Necker is depicted in accordance with the fashion of that time, in particular with a powdered hairstyle, in a blue jerkin, a white jabot, and a silk neckerchief around his neck. The miniature is in a bronze oval frame with convex glass on the obverse and reverse. On the back of it there is an ivory plate with the inscription: A mon ange (To my angel); it is placed obliquely.
On the left above the character’s shoulder there is the author's signature.
