Both of these miniatures were executed ca 1820 by (presumably) Turin court miniaturist Angelo Vacca. Set on opposite sides of one round locket (formerly part of a bangle? - for example, see our web #27752 ), they were painted not after nature but after a large-scale group portrait (painted ca 1815; see our image nr.7) by another Turin artist - Luigi Bernero. This portrait shows (among other sitters) both Victor Emmanuel, King of Sardinia (1759-1824; see our image nr.5) and his consort, Queen Maria Theresa, nee Archduchess of Austria-Este (1773-1832; see image nr.6).
Angelo Vacca (1783 Turin - 1823 Turin) was a pupil of Bussolino. He specialized in miniature painting. With time Vacca became a miniaturist at the Court of Piemont (Turin). Among his known works there are portraits of Kings Victor-Emmanuel I of Savoy and Charles-Felix.
Schidlof mentions that he was a skilful miniaturist, working in typical Italian style.
Provenance: private collection, Germany.
