DESCRIPTION :

Miniature portrait painted by Jean-Urbain Guérin (1761-1836) during the French Revolution, around 1790.

An old indication gave this portrait as that of a Bordeaux Revolutionary who could be Armand Gensonné (1758-1793), an erroneous identification. Rather, we see a possible portrait of Charles Jean-Marie Barbaroux (1767-1792), another figure of the Revolution, not born in Bordeaux but guillotined in this city on June 25, 1794 (hence perhaps the confusion).

Guérin, who espoused the ideas of the Revolution, he made several miniatures of the actors of this turbulent period of History.
