Hygin-Auguste Cavé
Hygin-Auguste Cavé (8 October 1796 – 30 March 1852) was a French attorney, journalist, and government official, as well as an occasional playwright and librettist, who often collaborated with Adolphe Dittmer under the pseudonym Jacques François de Fongeray. He is also sometimes referred to as Edmond Cavé.

This picture is an oil-on-canvas portrait of Cavé by French Neoclassical painter Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, which he commissioned in 1844, apparently as a companion piece to Ingres's earlier portrait of his wife, Madame Cavé. The painting is now in the collection of New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.Painting credit: Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres
