This superior quality miniature on ivory shows a relatively young officer of the Austrian 4th Line Infantry Regiment (note the sky-blue collar and yellow buttons of his uniform). He is shown wearing the ribbon of the Austrian "Tapferkeitsmedaille" ("Honor Medal for Bravery" - see our images nr.8-9), which he received years before, while he was a soldier or a non-commissioned officer. The custom of wearing ribbons rather than medals persisted between 1800 and 1811. Based on the sitter's hairstyle (typical for the turn of the 19th century, i.e. still powdered), we estimate the period of this miniature's execution as the early 1800s (in any case, not later than 1805).

Comparison with other works of this artist IN OUR POSSESSION convincingly prove that we are dealing here with an absolutely authentic work of Austro-German miniaturist Wendelin Moosbrugger. Moreover, during our research, we have come to a conclusion that the miniature was executed still during the time of the War of the Second Coalition (CLICK HERE). It is known that Moosbrugger permanently lived in the city of Constance (near both Austro-Swiss and Austro-German borders); also, the sitter's regiment (or one of its units) was stationed in the same area. This coincidence narrows the time span of this miniature's execution down to the early to late 1800.

Wendelin Moosbrugger (1760 Rehmen by Au (Austrian province Vorarlberg) - 1849 Aarau, Switzerland) began his study as a pupil at the Academy of Mannheim, then worked as a portrait painter in oils and as a miniaturist from 1794 in Constance, later in Karlsruhe, Vienna, Stuttgart, Rastatt and in Sweitzerland.
