  • After the fall of Napoleon Saint continued to enjoy much official success, being made Painter to Louis XVIII in 1818 and later to Charles X. He was appointed a Chevalier of the Legion of Honour in 1836. In 1827 Saint exhibited a miniature of Charles X at the Paris Salon. The quality of this miniature is too poor for it to be the Salon version, though it may be related to it compositionally.
