The catalog states: "This montage of 17 portraits caught our attention, because it shows us the way Horace worked, taking quick sketches of the models, which he then included into larger compositions. Despite examination in the Louvre laboratory, it was not possible to decipher decipher the names of all the figures assembled here? The figures assembled here all appear to have been painted between 1820 and 1835.

Géricault, by comparison with his portrait by Vernet, painted around 1829 and housed at the Beaux-arts de Paris; - in sixth place, collector and banker David Schickler (1777-1866), by comparison with his by Vernet in the Paul and Raphaëlle de Pourtalès collection. - in seventh place, the painter François-Joseph Heim (1787-1865), by comparison with his portrait by Vernet in the Louvre's Department of Graphic Arts; - in eleventh place, the Duc d'Orléans, Louis-Philippe 1er (1773-1850), King of the French from 1830, by comparison with Vernet's portrait at the Musée Condé in Chantilly.
