This miniature - it is made in verre-fixe technique (see below) - strongly resembles works of well-known Milan artist from the turn of the 19th century, Giovanni Migliara and could with great likelihood be an original work of his (our images nr.7-16 convincingly support this attribution).
Giovanni Migliara (1785 Alessandria - 1837 Milan) was an Italian painter active in the beginning of the 19th century, painting vedutes, interiors and history paintings.
Born to artisan parents of limited means, Giovanni Migliara began his career as a decorator[of veduta in the Teatro Carcano (1804) and La Scala (1805 - 1809). Due to illness, he stopped working for a time, and his works were limited. Then, from 1810, he began painting again in watercolors and oils on different surfaces.
While the Milanese painting scene was dominated by neoclassic painters Andrea Appiani and Luigi Sabatelli, Giovannni Migliara stayed with the historical themes and medieval subtlety of romanticism. With his improved technique, his choice of subjects, and the quality of his work, he became a favorite of the Milanese aristocracy. In 1822, he was named Professor of the Brera Academy in Milan, and in 1833, he was named painter of the Court of King Charles Albert of Sardinia.
As well as his historical canvases, he produced a number of church interiors in a topographical style.
The technique "verre-fixe" (or "fixe sous verre" meaning fixed under glass) is an old process where the painting (oil on thin canvas) is applied to the back of a glass pane in a way for the picture to be seen from the other side.
