Signed and dated "Pietro de Rossi Rm...1801" , it is an extremely rare, early portrait work of famous Italian-born Russian miniaturist Pietro (in Russia - Petr Osipovich) de Rossi (T.A. Selinova, in her monograph on the artist, mentions only one other (painted earlier) miniature, dated "1787"). The abbreviation "Rm.." clearly refers to the city of Rome, rather for its Latin name "Romae" (where the portrait was painted) and indicates that the artist arrived in Russia in 1801 at the earliest.

According to T.A. Selinova - the author of monograph "Petr Rossi /Russian miniaturist", Moscow, 2005 - Pietro (Petr Osipovich) de Rossi's exact date (and place) of birth (Rome? St. Petersburg?) remains unknown.
In any case, he was born sometime between 1761 and 1765. His early portraits produced in the end of the 18th century did not survive. Only Schidlof mentions one of his female portraits in Vienna collection Plankenwarth that bears the signature "Pietro de Rossi 1787". In the early 1800s, the artist counted among his sitters royalties and various other significant persons of St. Petersburg's high society. In 1813, Rossi was appointed member of the Imperial Academy with focus on miniature painting. Many of his works were reproduced by engravers and lithographers of his period. He died of cholera in 1831 in St. Petersburg.

Our images nr.7-13 show several miniatures by this artist that were offered at the international art auction market in the last years.
