Ernest Chassériau (?). Artist: Théodore Chassériau (French, Le Limon, Saint-Domingue, West Indies 1819-1856 Paris). Dimensions: Sheet: 9 3/8 x 7 3/4 in. (23.8 x 19.7 cm). Date: 1851.  The sitter is thought to be the artist's brother, Ernest, an infantry officer in the French navy, who died during the Franco-Prussian War (1870-71). Chassériau's crayon seems to have virtually danced across the sheet, as it marked the contours and creases of Ernest's jacket, waistcoat, and tie. The sitter's penetrating gaze and refined features are treated with a tenderness befitting a beloved brother. Museum: Me
