Executed in ca. 1785 (due to the types of sitters' dresses and hairstyles), these two superior quality miniatures on ivory are portraits of Danish aristocratic (and possible newlywed) married couple. The wife is portrayed as she is composing a letter to her husband, while the latter is shown reading it.
Both miniatures are typical and absolutely authentic works of German-born artist, who was from 1765 working at the Danish court, Wilhelm Andreas Mueller (Müller).

Wilhelm Andreas Mueller (1733 Brunswyck - 1816 Copenhagen) was a pupil of his uncle L.W. Busch in Salzdahlum, Lower Saxony. In 1757 he entered the Academy of Copenhagen. In 1765 he was appointed official painter of the King of Denmark and, in 1773 - member of the Academy of Copenhagen.
Schidlof says that he was one of the greatest miniaturist of Denmark, who in his best works surpassed Cornelius Hoyer and who could be compared with Nicolas Lavreince.
