Lot Essay

Born in Dijon, France, Saint-Memin fled to Switzerland with his family at the outbreak of the French Revolution. In 1793, he and his family moved to America where he became a portrait and landscape painter. After working along the East coast, including New Jersey, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Annapolis, Washington, Richmond and Charleston, he returned to France in 1814, where he died in 1852.
