 Greetings, Natasha -

An excellent site, and you obviously have put a great deal of work into it.

I am writing to ask about the date of birth of Jean Guy de Poilloue, Vicomte de Saint Perier.  Your published portrait shows it as 1845, which may very well be correct.  However, the Saint-Perier genealogy lists his date of birth as 1843. I am curious as to where you obtained his dob and dod.  Are they from Musee d\'Orsay or elsewhere?

Separately, are the two portraits now on display or housed at Musee d\'Orsay?  Someone suggested to me that they may be at the French American Friendship Museum at Blerancourt, near Paris (is this the same as Musee d\'Orsay?)  If not, it might be worthwhile to clarify where the paintings are now located.

I\'d love to hear from you when you have time to respond.

Thanks very much,  Tracy

Hi Tracy

The info came from the Joconde Database, which, when I got the image and info, had a page of text on each of the paintings, I can't find those pages now -- they moved it. I assume this info was coming from Musée d'Orsay

Secondly, I'm not aware as to which museums are showing what, other then contacting them directly and asking. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Do you know anything about Jean Guy de Poilloue you could share with us?
