One of the previous owners of this outstanding quality large miniature ascribed it to the great Jean-Baptiste-Jacques Augustin. Later, he revised his statement by adding "l'ecole d'(Augustin)" to his attribution. He was absolutely right - it is a work of one of Augustin's pupils; it demonstrates absolutely all stylistic criteria of great master's works and especially bears his famous "quasi-signature" - the wavy fold of lady's mousseline dress (see for comparison our additional images, especially image nr.11 with clips from catalogue of exhibition of Augustin's works which took place in 2010 in Saint-Die, France !).
Moreover, we are sure it is a work of Augustin's best pupil and his wife Mme Pauline Augustin, nee Ducruet (our comparison image nr.12 fully confirms her authorship).

Mme Magdeleine-Pauline Augustin, nee Ducruet was born in Paris in 1781 and died in Arras in 1865. She was a daughter of Germain Ducruet (Du Cruet), one of the King's numerous secretaries. She became Augustin's pupil and consequently married him at Fussyny - a place, where her family owned property. She debuted at the Salon of 1822 with miniature portraits of her husband, the painters Blondel and Abel de Pujol and of a Captain of the Guard. Two years later, at the Salon of 1824, she showed another portrait of Abel de Pujol, as well as a portrait of Lambert Massard. This time she earned the medal of the 2nd class for her effort. She took part in Salon exhibitions in the following years (1827, 1831, 1834, 1835 and 1838). It appears that around the time of her last participation at the Salon she retired to Arras, where she passed away in 1865.
According to Leo Schidlof, "she was the best pupil of her husband and his collaborator, and came to adopt his style to such an extent that it is often impossible to distinguish the work of each"
