Our comparison images nr.7-9 convincingly prove that we are dealing here with a typical work of Sweden's leading turn of the 19th century miniaturist Lorentz Sparrgren. Also the miniature's provenance speaks in favor of the latter's authorship: it was acquired from a private Stockholm collection.

Lorentz Lars Svensson Sparrgren (1763 Gothenburg - 1828 Stockholm) was a pupil of P.Hilleström at the Academy of Stockholm (Sparrgen studied there between 1783 and 1788). Later on, the artist left for India and from there to China to learn painting on glass. According to Thieme-Becker, he supposedly devoted himself to miniatures only after his return to Europe. He spent the period between 1796 to about 1803 in Paris. In 1796 he also became an associate member of the Academy of Stockholm, in 1800 - its full member and, in 1810 - one of its teaching professors.
Schidlof writes about him: "Sparrgren was undoubtedly the best Swedish miniaturist of his period. His style is very Scandinavian and is reminiscent of the technique of Domenico Bossi, but one feels there a serious French influence...".
