This miniature on ivory of very good quality is in our 100% conviction an absolutely typical work of well-known, turn of 19th century miniaturist Frederic Dubois (see also our comparison images nr. 8-16).
Moreover, due to dress and hairstyle of depicted lady it was executed in last years of artist's life - early 1820s (till today we only knew he died "after 1820").
Frédéric Dubois was born between 1770/75 in France (Saur's artist dictionary) and, according to the latest biographical information, debuted as miniaturist in 1793 (and not in 1790, as other sources imply). His earliest known miniature is dated "l'an 2" (i.e. 2nd year of the French Republic (1793/4)).
He was active in Paris until 1804, after which he moved to Russia where he remained until (probably!) 1818 (in 1813 he was granted membership of St. Petersburg Imperial Academy of Fine Art). In 1819-1820, he was exhibiting in different London locations. During his stay in Russia the artist painted a great number of portraits of royalties and aristocrats. He also portrayed French expatriates living in Russia's capital. His works of this period can be viewed in Moscow Pushkin Museum and Tretyakov Gallery, in St. Petersburg Hermitage and Russian Museum, as well as in other Russian museum collections.
Dubois' miniatures are not always signed and if signed - then either with monograms "F.D." or "D.B." or with "Dubois", "Dubois F." or "f.Dubois".
