Sir Peter Francis Bourgeois (November 1753 - January 8 1811) was an English-Swiss landscape painter and court painter to George III. He lived with his French partner Noel Desenfans and Desenfans's Welsh wife Margaret Morris. The three lived together in a house in Charlotte (now Hallam) Street, London. With No l Desenfans, an art dealer, they were commissioned in 1790 by King Stanis aw II August Poniatowski, King of Poland, to form a Royal Collection for Poland. The King sent his brother Michel Poniatowski to London to discuss the matter, to promote N el Desenfans as Polish consul in London and to present Bourgeois the Order of Merit "Merentibus" on 12 April 1791 (which is kept in the Dulwich Picture Gallery).show more
