According to sitter's dress and hairstyle, this miniature painting was executed in the 1790s.
Its author (a French artist) used the technique, which was commonly used by makers of much larger miniatures:
an ivory plaque was glued onto cardboard; additionally, pieces of of card were attached (around it) and overpainted, in order to produce an effect of enlarged composition. Why had "our" artist chosen to use this (otherwise rare) technique for a very small painting, remains unknown (perhaps, it was done according to commissioner's wishes).
