Although unsigned it is an absolutely authentic and very typical work (see our comparison images nr. 8-15) of one of the few best Viennese miniaturists of the turn of the 19th century, Carl Ludwig Hummel de Bourdon.
The depicted young gentleman, portrayed in the park of his residence, was surely a representative of the Austrian high aristocracy.

Carl Ludwig Hummel de Bourdon was born ca.1769 into an aristocratic family living in Besanšon, France. During the French Revolution he fled from the Great Terror from France and settled in Austria (this suggestion stems from Dr. Bodo Hofstetter (Switzerland); see his recently published catalogue "Portraitminiaturen/ Museum Liaunig", Neuhaus, 2015, p. 371). For the first time he is mentioned in a marriage contract completed in Vienna in 1800. In this document he is named as court artist of Archduke Joseph's (Palatine of Hungary) wife - Alexandra Pavlovna, nee Grand Duchess of Russia. This fact has made some art historian to suppose that Carl Hummel de Bourdon has spent a few years in Hungary in this period. Dr. Hofstetter believes that this supposition is not convincing enough, since the wedding of Alexandra Pavlovna and the Archduke Joseph took place on 30 October 1799, and Hummel's wedding took place in Vienna (and not in Hungary) a few months later.
It seems in the mid 1810s he spent some time in Poland (or Lemberg (Lviv) belonging then to the Austrian Empire, capital of formerly Polish (since 1772 Austrian) province Galicia). This supposition is supported by a lot of his portraits of Polish aristocrats of that time.
He died in Vienna in 1840 at the age of 71.
