This superior quality miniature portrait shows an anonymous aristocrat in nocturnal landscape (his dress and hairstyle suggest ca. 1740). It is, with high likelihood, a work of France's best mid-18th-century miniaturists, Jean-Baptiste Massť.

Jean-Baptiste Massť (1687 Paris - 1767 ibidem) was a son of goldsmith Jacob Massť, pupil of Jouvenet and Chatillon. At the onset of his career he worked as an egraver and painter on enamel; later, he was chiefly active as miniaturist and painter of portraits in oils; he also executed some historical paintings. In 1714 he became an associate of the Academie Royale, its full member in 1717, and its counsellor in 1740. Massť did the portraits of the Royal Family on many occassions, and although himself a Protestant, he was very well thought of and lived at the Court. He painted numerous miniatures for gift boxes of the Duke de Richelieu, as well as Louis XV. In 1759, the latter appointed him Garde des tableaux. Massť was a friend of Voltaire, who highly praised his art. Liotard and Alphen were amongst his pupils.
