Executed in the late 1790s (according to sitter's dress and hairstyle), it is an important work of Austrian female miniaturist and pupil of famous Viennese Neoclassical artist Heinrich Friedrich Fueger - Nanette Rosenzweig.
It is a miniature portrait of (still anonymous) Austrian gentleman wearing the so-called "Gnadenmedaille" ("Medal of Mercy") from the period 1792-1806 (reign of Franz II, Kaiser (Emperor) of the Holy Roman Empire; from 1806 to 1835 - Kaiser (Emperor) of Austria).
The "Gnadenmedaille" was lowermost among the other Austrian awards (it was awarded in Austria from as early as 16th century).

And now, a few words about the author of this portrait, Nanette Rosenzweig:

Nanette's maiden name was Haas. She must have married her husband (certain Windisch) before 1804, for there exist records of her visit to St. Petersburg in that year under her married name (see below). By that time, she was already a professional miniaturist, who completed training under famous Neoclassical artist and professor of the Vienna Academy, Friedrich Heinrich Fueger. In her premarital period, she signed her works with the surname "Rosenzweig". This name could have been either her artistic pseudonym (more resonant than the simple name "Haas", Rosenzweig is literally translated as "branch of roses"), or it could have been the name of her previous husband (before she married Windisch). In 1804, as already mentioned, she visited St. Petersburg (our friend - a great connoisseur of Russian portrait miniatures - Mr. Valeri Berezov, recently came across a mention of Nanette Rosenzweig-Windisch in "Severny Vestnik", 1804, part III (No. 7-9), p. 229. In it, one learns that "at the St. Petersburg Academy of Fine Art Exhibition of that (1804) year, there were shown five miniature portraits by the newly arrived artist, Mrs. Windisch". This information confirms that she married Windisch (and respectively, began signing her works as "Nanette Windisch") before 1804.
She was last mentioned in 1820 and probably passed away shortly after.
Works of her "pre-Windisch" ("Rosenzweig") period demonstrate strong influence of her teacher Fueger.
