This work was executed by St. Petersburg miniaturist Ivan Andreevich Winberg shortly before the sitter's wedding (on July 2, 1839 in St. Petersburg, she married Duke Maximilian von Leuchtenberg). It is a wonderful miniature portrait of the eldest daughter of Tsar Nikolai I and his wife Tsarina Alexandra Fedorovna, nee Princess Charlotte of Prussia, Grand Duchess Maria Nikolaevna of Russia (1819-1876). Our comparison images nr.10-19 convincingly prove that it is a portrait of Maria Nikolaena and not her younger sister, Grand Duchess Alexandra Nikolaevna (as erroneous legend on verso of the portrait implies).

Ivan Andreevich Winberg (1798 Helsinki - 1851 St. Petersburg) was a well-known Russian miniaturist and son of the Swedish-born, St. Petersburg goldsmith Andreas Winberg (1756 - after 1827), who from 1779 worked in Russia. From the early 1820s Winberg studied at the St. Petersburg Imperial Academy of Fine Arts, where he regularly exhibited his miniature portraits from 1824. In 1830 he received the title of "naznacheny v akademiki" (Associate of the Academy) artist and - in 1846 - titles of Professor and Academician (Member of the Academy) of miniature painting.
He also regularly exhibited his miniatures at annual academic exhibitions (1824, 1833, 1836, etc.). He was also active at the Court, which is evident from his miniature portraits (on ivory) of Alexander I, Nikolai I, Prince Kochubei, Count Sukhtelen, Empress Alexandra Fedorovna, Alexander II (as Grandduke), and other members of St. Petersburg high society.
Winberg's son, Ivan Ivanovich Winberg, was also a miniaturist.
Many portraits of Ivan Andreevich Winberg can be viewed in most esteemed museums of Russia: Tretyakov Gallery, Russian Museum, Hermitage, State Historical Museum, as well as other important Russian museum collections. His other works achieve increasingly high prices at the current antique market.
