André, Marie, Constant Duméril (1774-1860) served as a professor in the << faculté de médecine de Paris >> from 1801 to 1855. He was also chairman of herpetology and ichthyology of the << Muséum national d'histoire naturelle >> in Paris. The Paris-Descartes University (department of anatomy) owns a great, framed portrait which is an oil painting by Giuseppe Devers, 1855, representing C. Duméril sat on a chair. The study of his portrait, biography and bibliography brings precisions on a noticeable scholar of the anatomical and naturalistic field in Paris in the first half of the 19th century.
