BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE: Pauline Augustin (nee Du Cruet) was born in Paris in 1781. She entered the studio of Jean-Baptiste-Jacque Augustin (1759 - 1832) who was a Chevalier of the Legion of Honor, had a series of royal appointments, and was named Premier Painter of Miniatures to Louis XVIII. She was considered the most talented of all his many students. They married in 1800. It is probable that she collaborated with her husband on at least some of their miniatures. Mme Augustin survived her husband by 33 years.

Highly regarded, Mme Augustin exhibited at the Paris salons, and her works are now in The Cincinnati Art Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and numerous European museums and collections.
