Dimitrius Mavromichalis.

Dimitrius Mavromichalis Dupré, Louis. Dupré, Louis. Dimitrius Mavromichalis "Démétrius Mavromichalis." Paris "Imprimerie de Dondey-Dupré, Rue St Louis, No 46, Au Marais." 1825-37
Coloured lithograph of Dimitrius Mavromichalis from Louis Dupré's " Voyage â Athènes et â Constantinople...". Original hand colour; verso blank; blind stamp of Dupré as issued.
The image shows the young warrior holding a sword against a background of the wild Mani countryside and sea.
As one of the later lithographs it is more than likely that it was posed for and painted in Paris where Demetius Mavromichalis , the fifth and last son of Petrobey, Mavromichalis was studying between 1828 and 1831.
It is beleived that Dupré wished to honour the heroic history of the Mavromichalis family and its role in the Revolution. The Swiss Philhellene Jean-Gabriel Eynard isbeleived to have recommended Demetrius for his" sweet character and good behaviour" though he had reservations about the progress of his studies and the debts he was running up.

Born in !809 the youngest son of Petrobey Mavromichalis, he would have been too young to have taken an active role in the Revolution of 1821. His father became a member of the Filiki Eteria,in 1819 and in 1819 he brokered a formal pact among the major kapetanaioi families. On March 17, 1821, Petrobey raised his war flag in Areopolis, effectively signaling the start of the Greek War of Independence. His troops marched into Kalamata, and took the city on March 23. After the summer of 1822, Petrobey retired from battle, leaving the leadership of his troops to his sons (two of whom were killed fighting).

Demetrius would spend many years living in Paris and entered the military reaching the rank of major. he took an active part in the revolution of October 1862 which saw King Otto leave the country, Mavromichalis served in the interim administration and became Minister of the Military. he died in Athens in 1879. Removed from a frame; even toning; colours faded; some light spotting to margins.

Ali Pasha gained the support of the Souliotes mainly because he offered to allow the return of the Souliotes to their land, and partly by appeal to their perceived Albanian origin


Dupré, arrived in Corfu at the beginning of March 1820, whilst there he took a great interest in the Suliote heroes living in exile upon the island since Ali Pasha's conquest of the Suliotes in 1804. One of the first portraits he drew was of Photo Picos, who was surprised that Dupré knew his history.
Ironically the next portraits Dupré drew were whilst visiting Ali Pasha, in Joannina., with Lieutenant-General Sir Thomas Maitland Lord High Commissioner of the Ionian islands. Maitland encouraged Dupré to show Ali his drawings,and it is reported that on seeing the portrait of Photo Picos Ali exclaimed "Oh, I know him, He is one of my enemies!" Maitland suggested Ali accept the portrait as a gift, when the offer was only answered with a smile, Maitland, in an effort to maintain relations suggested Dupré draw the portrait of Ali's grandsons, which was to be the first of a number of drawings of members of Ali's househol , including the Pasha himsef.
Whilst there negotiations were in progress concerning the fate of Parga.
On returning to Corfu, he drew the famous image of Nicolo Pervoli standing by the canon pointing across to the mainland.
