The work, which is presented here, demonstrates good quality of execution and stylistic criteria of the works by one of Turin School miniaturists (CLICK HERE FOR OTHER WORKS OF THIS SCHOOL IN OUR POSSESSION). It is a miniature portrait of a young lady from the 1780s. Portrayed in a room interior, she is resting her elbow on the table with bouquet of flowers in glass vase atop. She is also holding a letter (surely addressed to either husband or lover) with a clearly detectable text in Italian - "Ardo per voi" (English: I will burn for you).
