This large, superior quality miniature is a third variation of well-known miniature housed in the Wallace Collection in London (see our image nr.6). The second variation, which was executed in 1823 by porcelain artist Adolphe Girardot, is a copy after the aforementioned Wallace Collection piece (it is on display in Museum of Celle, Germany - see our image nr.7). Wallace miniature is thought to be executed by artist working "in manner" (sic!) of well-known, early-19th-century Parisian miniaturist André-Léon Larue, called "Mansion" (see our image. nr.6). The copy by Girardot is catalogued by experts of Museum of Celle as "a copy after certain (whereabouts unknown) Mansion's miniature, copy after which (? - B.W.) is in Wallace Collection" (see our image nr.7).

And now an interesting turn:
In the collection of portrait miniatures in St.Petersburg Hermitage there is a miniature, demonstrating the same stylistic criteria as Wallace piece and our one. It is a portrait of unknown young (in all probabiblity Russian) lady from 1820s which is signed by another well-known French artist, staying in 1st half of 1820s in St.Petersburg - Anthelme Francois Lagrenée. (see our images nr.8-9).
Moreover, Moscow Pushkin Museum of Fine Art has an oil portrait by the same artist which fully demonstrates the same stylistic (see our images nr.10-11)
It seems the miniature in the Wallace Collection and respectively that in the Museum of Celle have to be examined again...

Anthelme Francois Lagrenée was born in Paris in 1774 as a son of French painter Louis-Francois Lagrenée. He was a pupil of his father and later - of Vincent. He exhibited at the Parisian Salon from 1799 to 1831. During the revolution Lagrenée served in the French army, where he meticulously studied the anatomy of horses, thus becoming a very fine horse-draughtsman. He was also a very good portraitist (mainly miniaturist); was also very well known as a good imitator of antique cameos. In 1817-1825 the artist lived and worked in St. Petersburg where he had a great success and did portraits of numerous members of aristocracy, as well as of the Empress Alexandra Fedorovna. As a portraitist (as already mentioned) Lagrenée painted chiefly miniatures on ivory and watercolour portraits (sic!), but known are his historical and animalistic paintings in oils. Schidlof writes: "Lagrenée was an excellent miniaturist whose works show a certain influence on Isabey, but his "pointille" is finer in the faces than with the pupils of latter". Miniatures and watercolour portraits of this artist belong to collections of Louvre (Paris), Hermitage and Russian Museum (St. Petersburg), Tretyakov Gallery and Historical Museum (Moscow), etc., etc.
