This superior quality miniature portrait was highly likely executed sometime between 1848 and 1851 in Vienna - the city, to which the sitter was forced to flee from his Duchy during the Revolution of 1848.
This portrait is a very important representation of then ca 30 year old Duke Franz V of Modena, nee Archduke Franz-Ferdinand Geminianus of Austria-Este (1819-1875). He is depicted here wearing the uniform of an Austrian major general (he was promoted into this rank in 1846; in 1851, he traded this uniform for the one of lieutenant-fieldmarshal's). He is shown wearing the badge of the Austrian order of the Golden Fleece (awarded in 1836) and the breast star of the Order of the Netherlands Lion (awarded in 1839). Our images nr.6-10 show other portraits of this man and offer his extensive biography.

It appears that the author of this miniature was of one of Vienna's leading miniaturists of this time, Robert Theer (for comparison, see our images nr.11-15).

Robert Theer (1808 Johannisberg/Austrian Silezia - 1863 Vienna) was a well-known Viennese portraitist and lithographer of the early 19th century.He was born in a well-known family of artists, son of a gem cutter Joseph Theer, brother of the painters Adolf Theer and Albert Theer. In 1820 together with his family he moved to Vienna, where he studied at the Academy under Eduard Klieber. He was also trained by miniaturist Moritz Michael Daffinger. At the age of 16 years he opened his own studio and from 1828 till 1846 regularly showed his works at the annual academical exhibitions in Vienna. He soon became a very popular miniaturist of the Vienna high society and court.
