The painting was probably painted in 1814, when Louis XVIII appointed Lebrun Inspector General of the Hussars. The model was the eldest son of Charles-François Lebrun (1739-1824), member of the Consul alongside Bonaparte and
Cambacères (December 1799 – May 1802), who had been made Duke of Plaisance
by the Emperor in 1806. His son Annes-Charles inherited the title on the estate of his father who died in 1824.
He settled in Paris after 1794, took part in the annual exhibition in Paris in 1799, and became an artist sought after by the rich and powerful of the time. He worked for the courts of Napoleon and Jérôme Bonaparte, King of Westphalia, whom he followed to his court in Cassel. He was awarded a medal by the Emperor in 1808.
