Originally inscribed (at 9:00 o'clock): "conciergerie" (for Parisian prison "Conciergerie" in period of French Revolution) it is a portrait of a relatively young (probably aristocratic) woman waiting on her trial (almost always ending then at guillotine).
It is an extremely rare work of well.known Parisian miniaturist who also spent (he was fortunately discharged) several months in that prison (see his biography below and our comparison images nr.8) - Jean-Baptiste Sambat.

Jean-Baptiste Sambat (1760 Lyon - 1827 Paris) accompanied Mirabeau, whose portraits he did several times, to Germany and England. He returned to Paris on the 14th of July 1790 and, on the same date, started a diary, in which he noted political facts, as well as the miniatures he painted with the prices obtained. During the Revolution, although he was a convinced revolutionary, in 1794 he was imprisoned for political reasons in the Conciergerie, Paris (CLICK HERE). By doing the portraits in miniature for his fellow-prisoners he made more money than when he was free.
Being released he exhibited at the Salon of 1793, the only one in which he took part, "a frame containing several miniatures".
