Of the highest quality, this miniature on ivory was recognized by our friend, world's best specialist in portrait miniatures Dr. Bodo Hofstetter as a typical work of the famous Viennese, 1st half of 19th century miniaturist Moritz Michael Daffinger.
Moreover, Dr. Hofstetter informed us that a copy after this miniature executed by Daffinger's best pupil Emanuel Thomas Peter (he often copied works of his master), formerly belonging to two well-known Swiss collections - of Ernst Holzscheiter and Erika Pohl-Ströher - was offered on 4th July 2019 at Sotheby's London (see our images nr.8-9).

Offered by Sotheby's as "Portrait of Frau von Fraynay" (obviously based on illegible title on verso) this miniature shows probably "Frau von Traynay" (we could not find any traces of a family "von Fraynay" online, but that of the French noble family "de Traynay").

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).

Provenance: acquired in 2008 from a Viennese private collection

We are very grateful to Dr. Hofstetter for his generous help
