This miniature portrait of a young aristocrat with crossed arms is with almost 100% possibility work of Austrian, turn of 19th century female artist Nanette Rosenzweig-Windisch (our comparison image nr.8 convincingly supports this attribution).

Nanette's maiden name was Haas. She must have married her husband (certain Windisch) before 1804, for there exist records of her visit to St. Petersburg in that year under her married name (see below). By that time, she was already a professional miniaturist, who completed training under famous Neoclassical artist and professor of the Vienna Academy, Friedrich Heinrich Fueger. In her premarital period, she signed her works with the surname "Rosenzweig". This name could have been either her artistic pseudonym (more resonant than the simple name "Haas", Rosenzweig is literally translated as "rose branch"), or it could have been the name of her previous husband (before she married Windisch). In 1804, as already mentioned, she visited St. Petersburg (our friend - a great connoisseur of Russian portrait miniatures - Mr. Valeri Berezov, recently came across a mention of Nanette Rosenzweig-Windisch in "Severny Vestnik", 1804, part III (No. 7-9), p. 229. In it, one learns that "at the St. Petersburg Academy of Fine Art Exhibition of that (1804) year, there were shown five miniature portraits by the newly arrived artist, Mrs. Windisch". This information confirms that she married Windisch (and respectively, began signing her works as "Nanette Windisch") before 1804.
She was last mentioned in 1820 and probably passed away shortly after.
Works of her "pre-Windisch" ("Rosenzweig") period demonstrate strong influence of her teacher Fueger.

This superior quality miniature on ivory, painted (according to sitter's dress and hairstyle) between 1800 and 1805, was acquired on the 25th of February 2012 at a sale of the auction house "Kaminski" (Beverly, Massachusetts, USA) as one in a group of other portrait miniatures - all sharing the same provenance: "Frederika Maria Beer-Monti, Vienna, Aaron and Greta Shapiro by descent, Susan and Peter Shapiro by descent (see our image nr.9).
The first owner of this portrait - Frederika (Friederike) Maria Beer-Monti was especially well known. This lady was born in ca. 1890 into the family of the owner of famous "Kaiser-Bar" in center of the Austrian capital. In 1914, then 25 years old and girl-friend of young Viennese artist Hans Boehler, she got acquainted with Egon Schiele (Boehler's cousin was Schiele's assistant and student). She commissioned Schiele to paint a portrait of herself.
A year and a half later Boehler introduced her to great Gustav Klimt. And again the wealthy young woman commissioned the master to paint her portrait (for both of these portraits, as well as photographs showing Friederike with Klimt, see our images nr.10-12).
In 1834 Friederike emigrated (via Germany) to the USA (she boarded a ship in Hamburg carrying with her only the most important objects of her art collection). By 1936 she already established herself as a well-known New York art dealer and Director of the newly-founded Artist's Gallery).
When she passed away (early 1970?) her collection was inherited by her niece Greta Shapiro. When, in her turn, Greta passed away, her husband Aaron Shapiro inherited it. After the death of Aaron, all items were passed on to Greta and Aaron's children Peter and Susan Shapiro...
