Due to attentiveness of Mr. Mark Izmailov who discovered on Web another (signed!) replica of this miniature, this portrait turned out to be a work not by Carl Kronnowetter (as we erroneously believed) but that, executed in 1829 by Munich, early 19th century artist Peter Mayr.
The detected by Mr. Izmailov replica (see our image nr.6) resurfaced initially at the 1993 Soteby's sale of Thurn und Taxis Collection. In sale catalogue it was titled "Portrait of Amelie Loise Princess d'Arenberg" what seems to be also an error - the princess (she was (since 1807) Duchess in Bavaria (see our image nr. 7 with her biography) died in 1823 (i.e. 6 years before this miniature was executed). Also sitter's dress and hairstyle is not from early 1820s but from the second half of 1820s...
