“Lady (wearing a chemise a la reine) with a Book, next to a River Source” (ca. 1787). Antoine Vestier (1740-1842). São Paolo Museum of Art.
Vestier was a French miniaturist and painter of portraits who trained in the atelier of Jean-Baptiste Pierre. He showed his work at the Salon de la Correspondance, Paris, before being admitted (agréé) to the Académie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture in 1785, when a portrait of the painter Gabriel François Doyen was his morceau de réception.
Among his sitters was the royal ébéniste, Jean Henri Riesener (1786, Musée de Versailles).
