"Portrait Of A Lady In White" By ~ Louis Lie Perin-Salbreux ~ 1753 - 1817.

Louis Lie Perin-Salbreux (1753 Reims - 1817 ibidem) was the son of a cloth manufacturer in Reims, where he studied under Ganes, called Clermont. At the age of 25 he went to Paris, where he became a student of Lemmonier and Sicardi and became friendly with Roslin, who is said to have advised him to specialise in miniature painting. In fact, Perin excelled in this field, although he also did portraits in oils and in pastel. He exhibited at the Salon from 1793 to 1798 and seems to have rapidly gained success in Parisian aristocratic circles, a clientele he was forcibly deprived of by the Revolution.
