This, made in technique of enamel painting miniature portrait of a young (surely aristocratic) lady (she is dressed and hairstyled according to the fashion of early 1790s) strongly resembles works of the well-known French miniaturist (also enamelist) Jean-Baptiste Weyler. The same lady we meet on the (painted by the same hand!) miniature on ivory (!) , showing her with her husband (see our image nr.9). This miniature was offered on November 17, 2009 (lot 73) at Christie's London as "Circle of Jean Bauzil" (see latter's works in our possession). We can not explain this Christie's attribution - Jean (Juan) Bazil is never mentioned as enamelist and besides that we could not find any comparable works of his...

Jean-Baptiste Weyler (1747 Strasburg - 1791 Paris) was a son of Strasburg senator Jean-Daniel Weyler and Maria-Salome, nee Kamm. After studying under brothers Haldenwanger and Redlob (all three were Strasburg artists) he went to Paris. There, from 1763 he became a pupil of J.M. Vien. He soon began specializing in miniature on ivory and enamel, but also did pastels, as well as sketches for his collection of famous French personages. These he never completed on account of his premature death, and they were continued by his wife nineteen years later. At the age of 32 he became on the 25th of September 1779 a member of the Academy of Paris. His presentation piece was the portrait on enamel of Count d'Angiviller, which was acquired by the Louvre for the sum of 3000 francs in 1853. Weyler exhibited at the Salon from 1775 to 1791, amongst others in 1787, an enamel portrait of the painter Francois De Troy, Director of the French Academie in Rome, which is now in the Louvre.
Schidlof says further that Weyler was "without doubt the best French painter on enamel of his time. He was so famous as a painter on enamel that most people do not know that he also did numerous and magnificent miniatures on ivory".
