The item, which is offered here, is an absolute rarity for the current antique market. It is a miniature by miniaturist Tovyi Vodo (Tobias Vodeau?), who was born in 1775 in Naples and came to Russia in 1790s. He died in St.Petersburg (where he was mainly mentioned), in 1848 (see our image nr10). In 1807 St.Petersburg Imperia Academy of Art awarded his title of "naznachennyi khudozhnik" ("appointed) artist").

Today, Tovyi Vodo is first and foremost known as the author of several miniature portraits of the members of Count Sheremetev's family (for example, see our image nr.8). Besides that, Tovyi Vodo must have been an art dealer specializing in European artists, for St. Petersburg newspapers of that time were often riddled with his offers for sale.

The presented here miniature shows a relatively young "gospodin" (gentleman), whose name is concealed on the backing, under the golden initial "E". This man was surely one of St. Petersburg turn of the 19th century aristocrats.

Provenance: an Ebay-seller living in Edinburgh, Scotland.
