Guillaume Voiriot (Paris 1712–1799) Portrait of a gentleman with a violin, oil on canvas, 104 x 88 cm, framed Provenance: according to a label on the reverse, the painting was formerly owned by François Élie, Comte de Moustier (1751–1817) We are grateful to Jean Jacques Petit, who examined the painting in the original and confirmed the attribution. Voiriot, born the son of a ‘sculpteur des bâtiments du Roi’’’’, studied at the Académie de France in Rome between 1746 and 1749. On his way back to Paris he painted several portraits for the Savoy court in Turin. In 1757, Voiriot was admitted to the Academy in Paris as an ‘agrée’’’’ and two years later became a full member. He exhibited at the Salons between 1761 and 1763. According to a label on the reverse the present painting was once owned by the Comte de Moustier, French envoy to the United States from 1787 to 1789 and a close friend of George Washington. After the death of his wife he lived with his sister-in-law, who was an artist and painted one of the rare portraits of Washington. We are grateful to Marquis Léonel de Moustier for providing information on the painting’’’’s provenance. additional pictures: fig. 1: Voiriot, Portrait of M.

Guillaume Voiriot Paris 1713-1799
Portrait of Monsieur Aublet, three-quarter-length, seated, in a black fancy costume and playing a five-course guitar, a sheet of music on a table beside him
Add. Notes: signed with initials 'V.P.' (on the guitar) oil on canvas 50¾ x 38¼ in. 128.9 x 97.2 cm. Provenance
Notes: The identification of the sitter dates from 1782, when the present picture was exhibited at the Salon de Paris. Few biographical details are known about Monsieur Aublet. He is portrayed holding a French five-stringed guitar, characteristic of the work of the Parisian seventeenth-century luthier, Rene Voboam. The painting is signed by the artist with initials on the ivory tablet at the top of the pegbox, in the same manner in which Voboam signed his guitars. Born to a family of artists, Voiriot studied in Rome under the patronage of Louis XV's Minister for Fine Art, Charles François Le Normand de Tournehem. He received his first Royal commission in 1752. A painter of portraits and genre scenes, he was a member of the Académie Royal de Peinture et de Sculpture, attaining the rank of Councillor in 1785. He exhibited work at this Salon between 1752 and 1791, and at the Salon de Correspondance in 1782, where the present picture was included.
Provenance: with Wildenstein, New York. Anonymous sale; Christie's, London, 6 July 1990, lot 95.
Exhibited: Paris, Hôtel Villayer, Rue Saint André-des-Arts, Salon de la Correspondance, June 1782 as 'Portraite de M. Aublet, jouant sa guitare, coupé à ses genoux'.
