Although unsigned this miniature on ivory demonstrates absolutely all stylistic criteria (and as usual for this artist the highest quality of execution!) of works of the best Viennese miniaturist of 1st half of the 19th century, Moritz Michael Daffinger (see our comparison images nr. 8-15 and CLICK HERE FOR OTHER WORKS OF THIS ARTIST IN OUR POSSESSION).
Moreover, on the backside of the miniature one finds label from the 19th century with name "Daffinger" (see our image nr.6).
The final argument for Daffinger's authorship is provided by the frame - it is a typical Viennese brass frame used often by the artist (so-called "Daffinger frame").

Moritz Michael Daffinger (1790 Vienna -1849 ibidem) is considered truly the best Austrian portrait miniature painter of all times. He was born as son of the porcelain painter Johann Daffinger, began at the age of 11 years as apprentice at the Vienna Porcelain Manufactory where he studied under Fueger's pupil Michael Weixelbaum. From 1802 he studied at the Vienna Academy under Huber and Maurer. Simultaneously he was one of the best porcelain painters at the Vienna Porcelain Manufactory. Especially popular were his portraits of the Austrian royal family and courtiers, painted on plates, cups and vases. Around 1809 he began to paint portraits on ivory. During the time of the Vienna Congress, Daffinger was already a requested and very appreciated portraitist. The presence of the English portraitist Thomas Lawrence in Vienna during the Congress influenced his art remarkably. Already in the early 1820's Daffinger was portraitist of the royal family and the main noble families of Austria. Works by him can be found in the most important world museum collections and achieve at the international art market very high prices (up to USD 150,000).
