J. M. Collot d’Herbois, Director of the theatre of Geneva. 1880.

Etching by Frédéric Hillemacher (1811-1886).

Published in Collot d’Herbois: Légendes noires et Révolution by Michel Biard. - Presses Universitaires de Lyon, 1995.

It is known that Frédéric Hillemacher is the author of a series of portraits of XVIII century actors. These portraits were based on contemporary drawings. Thus it is possible to surmise that the present portrait is also based on a contemporary drawing made from life. The description appearing at the bottom which reads "J. M. Collot d’Herbois. Director of the theatre of Geneva" suggests that the original drawing may be dated around 1784-1787 when Collot was the director of that theatre.

The drawing appears to be based on the engraving of E. Deschamps after Yan Dargent (above) which in turn might be based on the Bosselman/Raffet engraving (at no. 4 above).

The portrait appears to be loosely based on the above drawing by François Bonneville, which is why we are placing it here rather than in the Modern Portraits section.

Like with the portrait above, the style resembles that of Delpech. Both portraits are very similar, creating the impression of being based on two sketches made during the same session.

This portrait was also published in the Dictionnaire des comédiens français, ceux d'hier: biographie, bibliographie, iconographie by Henry Lyonnet.
