Executed in the 18th century in "verre-fixe" technique this round miniature with a "kermess" scene strongly resembles works of well-known French miniaturist Louis-Nicolas van Blarenberghe and with a very great possibility was made by one of latter's pupils.
Louis-Nicolas van Blarenberghe was a member of famous artist family from Lille. He was born in this town in 1716 and died in Fontanebleau in 1794. He was a son of artist Jacques-Willem van Blarenberghe, brother of artist Henri-Desire van Blarenberghe and father of miniaturist Henri-Joseph van Blarenberghe.
Louis-Nicolas began his artistic career in Lille, where he mainly painted gouaches with battle scenes (on paper, vellum and ivory) in style of 17th-century Flemish and Dutch masters. After the death of his wife, he settled in 1751 in Paris, becoming the favourite artist of Marquise de Pompadour and Duke de Choiseul. On their commissions, the artist produced a great number of miniatures. He established connection with the Russian court in 1761, as Tsar Peter III engaged him to decorate a tabatière miniature with historical scenes of Tsar's Holstein Regiment. In 1768, Peter III's widow (and now herself the Empress of Russia), Catherina II (the Great) invited him to Russia to paint a pedestal decoration for the memorial statue of Tsar Peter the Great. The artist travelled to Moscow via Strasbourg, Munich, Vienna and Warsaw. On his way from Moscow to St. Petersburg, he likely visited Vilna, Mittau and Riga. Van Blarenberghe stayed in St. Petersburg from winter 1769 until the spring of 1770, returning to France via Denmark and Germany. Several of his works from the "Russian" period are in the collection of the St. Petersburger Hermitage.
In 1769, van Blarenberghe was appointed "Peintre du Department de la Guerre" (Ministry of War) by his sponsor Duke de Choiseul, followed by his appointment "Premier Peintre de la Marine" in 1773.
