Description:
Description: The identity of both the sitter and the artist are recorded in an inscription on the reverse of the image: \\\“Maur Meyer de Schauensee / general de Brigade au ….France / peint / par Appiani peintre a Milan / A° 1797\\\”.Meyer de Schauensee joined the Swiss Guard Regiment in Paris as a second lieutenant in 1784. He later allied with the revolutionaries and became a French citizen in 1791. He fell into Austrian hands as a prisoner of war during the Battle of Mantua in 1799 whilst on active duty in Italy. It is possible that Andrea Appiani, an important Italian Neoclassical painter and great admirer of Napoleon, painted the General whilst he was in Milan in 1797. Appiani became court painter to Napoleon in 1805, but had already honoured his military successes in Italy in 1796 and 1797 with the design of the motif sides of medallions commemorating his victories in the battles of Montenotte, Millesimo, and Mantua.

LITERATURE AND REFERENCES
A.L. Clark (ed), Mastery and Elegance, Two Centuries of
French Drawings from the Collection of Jeffrey E. Horvitz,
Cambridge 1998, p. 84, fig. 9
CATALOGUE NOTEThis drawing relates to a fresco commissioned in 1789 by the
Archduke Ferdinand, son of Empress Maria Theresa of Austria, for
the Villa Reale, Monza. The villa was designed and built in 1769 by
Giuseppe Piermarini (a pupil of Vanvitelli) at the instigation of
the Empress, who wanted to create a country estate for her fourth
son, close to the main source of imperial power, the Palazzo Reale
in Milan. Appiani's frescoes, which depicted episodes from the
story of Cupid and Psyche, were intended for the Rotunda that led
to the Archduke's apartments. The Horvitz drawing is related to the
circular fresco on the vault.
A preparatory study for this fresco was sold at Sotheby's London
(8 December 1972, lot 42). That sheet was squared for transfer and
included a peacock at the lower centre. As the present drawing is
dated three years later than the fresco and is executed in a highly
finished style, it appears to be have been made in preparation for
a print after the vault, whose charming subject must have made it
immensely popular. A drawing by Appiani depicting
Parnassus, in a comparably finished style, was sold by
Christie's in London (9 April 1990, lot 73).
