Essay: Johann Daniel Berneaud (1773 - 1861) trained as an enamel painter in Geneva and worked with Antoine Carteret for some time. Around 1814 he returned to his native town of Hanau and worked for several manufacturers of gold goods. Berneaud decorated a number of gold boxes with his paintings; he favoured allegorical motifs and flowers. It is said that Goethe was one of Berneaud’s admirers. This was also the time when Berneaud began receiving commissions from the Turkish sultanate.
