This miniature on ivory is executed in the manner of famous, 18th-century French miniaturist of Swedish descent, Peter Adolf Hall. It is a work of an anonymous artist of the 2nd half of the 19th century.
Peter Adolf Hall was born in 1739 in Boras , Sweden and died in 1793 in Liege.
After studying medicine in Uppsala and Greifswald, he went on in 1756 to study painting in Berlin, and in 1758 in Hamburg under K.F. W. Richard, then, between 1760 and 1766 in Stockholm, in the studio of the sculptor P.L'Archveque and of the painter in pastels, G. Lundberg.
In 1766 he received an order from the Court of Sweden to paint a portrait of the King Gustav III. Afterward, he want to Paris where, favoured by Roslin, he became an associate of the Academy in 1769 and official painter to the King for the miniatures he exhibited at the Salon in that year.
His Studio, in the Rue Neuve-des-Bons-enfants, was an artistic center frequented by Hubert Robert, Greuze, Mme Vigee Lebrun, etc.
The year 1784, however, set a difficult period in motion, and Hall went on to loose all of his capital between 1789 and 1793. Far from his family, he wandered during the last period from Aix to Brussels, Spaa, Maastricht and Liege.
Schidlof writes, "although Hall was Swedish by origin, he is considered as the greatest (!) French miniaturist of the second half of the 18th century".
Many of Hall's miniatures are in Louvre, the Wallace Collection (London), the National Museum of Stockholm, and other prominent international museums.
