This high quality miniature on ivory with a portrait of a young gentleman in uniform of a French military official from the early period of Directory seems to be a work of travelling German miniaturist Peter Eduard Stroely (see our comparison images nr.6-13). Latter's biograhy don't contain information about his possible stay in France of early 1790s what don't exclude the possibility of sitter's visit either to Germany (1791/92) or to Naples (1793/94) or even to Vienna (1795/96)...

According to recent publications of Russian art historian, Dr. Lyubov Pulikova, Peter Eduard Stroely (Straely, Stroehling, Stroelling) was born in autumn of 1766 in Dusseldorf into the family of Johann Burhard Stroely and Marie Gertrude Bliessem (a note of the baptism of the newborn Peter Eduard Heinrich Burhard Stroely (Stroehling) was made on 28 October 1766).
The artist's father was a member of the "Malerzunft" (artist guild) and was active as an artist making monumental decorations. Peter Eduard, probably, began his art education in the native Dusseldorf (in the local drawing school, which became an Academy of Fine Arts in 1777) or he even visited Italy or England for study.
In any case, in the 1780s he already worked in Germany as itinerant miniaturist; we meet him in Mannheim and Mainz in 1789, in Frankfurt in 1791/92, and in Berlin 1792. In late 1792 he came to Naples to work at the court (some historians believe he worked also in Rome at that time). In early 1795 the artist came to Vienna where he mainly worked for the Royal House and high aristocracy.
Approximately in late February - beginning of March 1797 Stroely came to St. Petersburg where he stayed until March 1802. And again, among his clients were only members of the Russian Royal Family and high aristocrats.
From Russia he came to Berlin, where for a few months he worked for the Prussian royalties, and in 1803 finally settled in England, where he stayed until his death after 1828.
Works of his are to see in most important museums in Germany, Russia, Great Britain etc.
