Lot No. 208* (99th Auction)
Attributed to Jean-Abraham Lissignol, 82 x 56 mm, 32 g, circa 1780

A rare enamel plaque "Cupid and Psyche"
Case: copper and polychrome enamel, rectangular form with slanted corners.

Even though the enamel painting is not signed, it is fairly obviously Lissignol’s work. The extremely fine strokes of the brush - made by a single hair - in combination with the pointillistic technique are typical for his work.

Jean-Abraham Lissignol was born in Geneva in 1749. He was the pupil and partner of Jean-Marc Roux and later was apprenticed in Paris. He was one of the most important enamel miniature painters and was specialised on snuffboxes and watch cases. He worked for Jaquet-Droz, Leschot, Rochat, John Rich and Jean-Georges Rémond & Company He died in Plainpalais in 1819.
