A high quality French miniature on ivory showing a young lady and her daughter by the monument with French inscriptions "Constantin" and "La Valeur sert d'appui ala faiblesse" (translated into English as "Heroism serves to protect the Weakness". The small pedestal with vase on top bears an inscription "Auguste". Who are the characters behind the names Constantin and Auguste unfortunately remains unknown to us. They must have been persons of the highly noble descent.
One thing, nevertheless, is clear: the lady and her child are honoring the husband and father, who has either gone to war (Napoleonic Wars) or has died fighting in it. The latter version appears to be more credible to us, as this subject matter is very typical for the so-called mourning portrait miniatures.

In our opinion, this miniature meets all stylistic criteria of works by the well-known Parisian miniaturist Pierre Charles Cior, and could also, with great possibility, be his original work (for comparison, see our additional images nr. 9-12).

Pierre Charles Cior (1769 Paris - ca. 1840 Paris) was a pupil of Bazil. At the Salon of 1796 he exhibited a frame containing several miniatures, and, in 1799, two other miniatures. It was thirty two years later in 1831 that Cior again participated at the Salon, making his final reappearance in 1838. The artist travelled a lot throughout his career. The details of his itineraries are unknown, yet it is known that he was appointed a Painter in Miniature to the King of Spain, and that he also worked quite a lot at the Russian Court, where, among others, he did the portraits of the Emperor Paul I of Russia and his wife, of Prince Kourakin and Princess Poniatowska. He also painted Prince Eszterhazy, the Queen of Holland, the Duke of Luxemburg, Louis XVIII and numerous other personalities.
