Although unsigned, this miniature portrait of a gentleman holding a letter is a typical and - and we strongly believe - absolutely authentic work of well-known, French, turn of the 19th century miniaturist Louis Abel (our comparison image nr.7 fully confirms his authorship).

Louis Abel was born in Liancourt, department Oise. In 1792 we meet him already as working in Paris. Between 1800 and 1801 he lived in rue de Helder, Paris. It is known that he was a pupil of Jean-Urbain Guerin. Some of his works resemble those of his teacher so strongly that several unsigned works in the collection of Louvre were taken for works of Guerin for many years.
Schidlof errouneously thought that miniatures signed "Abel" (like ours) are works of the German artist Wilhelm-August-Christian Abel.
