Formerly part of the famous art collection of New York socialite Mrs. Elizabeth "Mimi" Stafford (1928-2018) this miniature of fantastic quality which is still inserted into the lid of the original round box was not included (luckily for us!) in the Christie's sale of November 1st 2018 by Christie's experts (containing the 249 best items of this immense collection - see our image nr.11) and resurfaced in the online sale on May 18th 2019 of US auction house "Millea Bros. Ltd.", Boonton, New Jersey (see our image nr.12).
We were again lucky when the experts of Millea Bros. did not recognize this miniature as a very typical and 100% authentic (it is clearly signed at 7:30 o'clock - "hall" - see our image nr.6) work of Swedish-born artist and one of the leading Parisian miniaturists of the 2nd half of the 18th century - Pierre-Adolphe Hall. Our comparison images 13-24 and other works of Hall IN OUR POSSESSION fully prove the latter's authorship.

Pierre-Adolphe (really Peter Adolf) Hall was born in 1739 in Boras , Sweden and died in 1793 in Liege.
After studying medicine in Uppsala and Greifswald, he went on in 1756 to study painting in Berlin, and in 1758 in Hamburg under K.F. W. Richard, then, between 1760 and 1766 in Stockholm, in the studio of the sculptor P.L'Archveque and of the painter in pastels, G. Lundberg.
In 1766 he received an order from the Court of Sweden to paint a portrait of the King Gustav III. Afterward, he want to Paris where, favoured by Roslin, he became an associate of the Academy in 1769 and official painter to the King for the miniatures he exhibited at the Salon in that year.
His Studio, in the Rue Neuve-des-Bons-enfants, was an artistic center frequented by Hubert Robert, Greuze, Mme Vigee Lebrun, etc. The year 1784, however, set a difficult period in motion, and Hall went on to loose all of his capital between 1789 and 1793. Far from his family, he wandered during the last period from Aix to Brussels, Spaa, Maastricht and Liege.
Schidlof writes, "although Hall was Swedish by origin, he is considered as the greatest (!) French miniaturist of the second half of the 18th century".
Many of Hall's miniatures are in Louvre, the Wallace Collection (London), the National Museum of Stockholm, and other prominent international museums.
