According to the sitter's dress and hair-style, this very qualitative French, oil on copper miniature was made about 1700. Due to this time frame, the young lady portrayed here could in no way be famous Françoise d'Aubigne, Marquise de Maintenon, who in her first marriage was Mme Scarron (the old inscription on verso of the miniature refers to her as "Mdme Scaron"), and who later became the 2nd wife of King Louis XIV of France. She died in 1719 at the age of 84, in other words, around 1700 she was exceedingly older than the young lady portrayed in "our" portrait.
Nonetheless, it is a very attractive work of one of France's best portraitists working at the turn of the 18th century.
This miniature demostrates stylistic criteria of works of well-known Fench portrasitist from the turn of 18th century, François de Troy (1645-1730; see our image nr.7 with his biography).
