According to the sitter's dress and hairstyle, this miniature was executed between 1800 and 1805. It is a superior quality miniature portrait of a (still anonymous) highly aristocratic lady in park landscape. Initially it was thought to be a portrait executed in Russia - either by leading St.Petersburg portraitist Vladimir Lukich Borovikovski or by living then (1795-1804) in Russian capital Austrian portrait painter Johann Baptist Lampi the Younger. In contrary, in his, dated 23rd October 2017, e-mail our friend, world's best specialist in portrait miniatures Dr. Bodo Hofstetter informed us that in reality this miniature is an absolutely authentic and very important work of another Austrian portraitist (and miniaturist!), Vienna court artist Josef Kreutzinger. The latter also had numerous Russian clients and even stayed in St.Petersburg, in 1793 (see his biography below).
Our images nr.9-20 provide comparison which fully confirms Kreutzinger's authorship.

Josef Kreutzinger (also Kreuzinger; 1757 Vienna - 1829 ibidem) studied from 1768 at the Viennese "Academy St. Anna" (Academy of Fine Art) and after 1774 was strongly influenced by Viennese Neoclassical historical painter and portraitist Friedrich Heinrich Fueger who arrived in Vienna this year. Kreutzinger became Fueger's pupil immediately. After a short stay in Munich and several months in St. Petersburg (1793), Kreutzinger returned to Vienna where he later became a sought after portraitist of high society and court (he was also appointed"Hofkammermahler" (court artist)). His works of this period demonstrate a strong influence of English portraitists of the 18th century - Lawrence, Reynolds and Gainsborough. From Lawrence originates the "en-face" representation of faces with a sidewards glance and upper body facing in the opposite direction in three-quarters portraits. Reminiscent of Gainsborough are portraits where the depicted person stands next to their horse. Besides royalties and high aristocracy Kreutzinger's clientele consisted of military persons, scholars and artists. Later he also portrayed representatives of Viennese bourgeosie. He was also active as engraver and portrait miniaturist. In 1936 one of Vienna's streets was named in his honor - Kreutzingergasse in the Viennese 12th district.

Provenance: antique trade, Paris

We are very grateful to Dr. Hofstetter for his generous help
