A rarity at the current antique market, this superior quality miniature on ivory is a signed (and clearly one of the artist's final) work of untimely deceased Hungarian miniaturist Gabor Melegh, who was active in the 1st third of the 19th century. Additionally, the strong resemblance of this miniature to the works of Vienna's best miniaturist of the same period, Moritz Michael Daffinger, allows us to suppose that Melegh took lessons from the latter.

Gabor (Gabriel) Melegh was born on May 14, 1801 in Hungarian town Versec (now Vršac in Serbia) and died on April 4, 1832 in Vienna (some sources imply that he died in 1835 in Trieste). He studied at the Vienna Academy and was active in Vienna, Versec and Timisoara (Temesvár) as a painter of genre subjects and portraits in oils and watercolor, as well as miniature. Melegh also worked as an engraver. Schidlof writes about him the following: "Melegh was a very good artist. His works show a strong influence of Daffinger…".
