This page shows images of Clausewitz's great 19th-century competitor, the Swiss/French historian and theorist Antoine-Henri Jomini (1779-1869). See Wikipedia articles on him in English, French, German, and Russian. We were dubious about some of the images but have now confirmed most of them. Also see bibliographical data on Jomini.
We believe that this drawing, a study for a painting of Jomini in late middle-age (by Marc-Charles-Gabriel Gleyre in 1859), is in the collection of the town museum of Payerne, Switzerland (Jomini's home town), which maintains a permanent exposition on him.. See more variations on this study below.

Above and below: portrait of General Jomini. Oil on canvas by Marc-Charles-Gabriel Gleyre, circa 1858 (Cantonal Museum of Fine Arts in Lausanne; photograph Jean-Claude Ducret). By official order of the Vaud Council of State in 1858, the portrait was executed in Paris by Charles Gleyre and delivered to Lausanne in 1859. The model wears the uniform of lieutenant-general of the Russian army, his last military rank, and sports the decorations received from the Tsar and Louis XVIII.

By George Dawe (1781–1829). Dr. Jonathan Abel tells us (13 OCT 2021) that this portrait was probably painted before 1825, according to the provenance provided by The Hermitage, in Saint Persburg, Russia, which holds the painting in its collection.
