This high quality miniature on ivory is probably a work of well-known, late-18th-century French miniaturist Jean Baptiste Joseph Le Tellier (for comparison, see our images nr.7-8 and our web #29772 ). According to the sitter's dress and hairstyle, this miniature was executed sometime in the mid-1780s.

Jean Baptiste Joseph Le Tellier (1759 Paris - after 1812 Paris) worked in Paris as a painter of miniatures on ivory and enamel. He was "Peintre des Menus-Plaisirs", for which he delivered five portraits of Marie-Antoinette. Schidlof says further, "his works of this period were usually mounted on the boxes of Drais & Gaillard (sic!), and he obtained 15 Louis for the original and 10 Louis for each replica". He exhibited "a frame containing miniatures" at the 1793 Salon, and took part at 1812 Salon, showing several miniatures. Le Tellier was a friend of Jean-Baptiste-Jacques Augustin. In his good pieces he showed a first-class talent.
Works of Le Tellier are housed by the Louvre, the National Museum of Stockholm and other esteemed public and private collections.
