According to the old authentic inscription on verso ("la Comtesse Victoire Colloredo avec son fills le Comte Francesco Colloredo"), it is a miniature portrait of Marie Victoire Countess Colloredo (1766-1845) with her one-year-old son Franz Count Colloredo.
This lady was born as daughter of Count Francois-Médéric Folliot de Crenneville Seigneur de Presle et du Buisson and Anne-Pierette-Charlotte du Poutet. As a young girl, she married her cousin, colonel baron Charles du Poutet. After the latter's death, she married in 1799 her second husband, highly aristocratic Austrian statesman, Cabinet's Minister, Reichsgraf (Count of Holy Roman Empire) Franz de Paula Carl von Colloredo-Waldsee (1736-1806). Just thereafter she became an "aja" (governess) of 9-years-aged Archduchess Marie Louise (future second wife of Napoleon I) and many years long was a close friend of latter. On the 29th of October 1799, son Franz was born (our miniature shows both mother and son; our image nr.13 shows Franz at the age of twenty).
After the death of her second husband, the twice-widowed Marie Victoire lived alone with her son Franz until 1816 - a year, in which she married for the third time, albeit again unsuccessfully: she spent only one year together with her third husband, Austrian Lieutenant-Fieldmarshal Carl Eugen Prince of Lorrain-Lambesc (1751-1825; his portrait is also in our possession - see our # 35266); they divorced already in 1817.
The author of this large premium quality miniature was one of the best portrait miniaturists of the turn of 19th century, German-Austrian artist Joseph Kaltner.
Joseph Kaltner (1750 Nymphenburg - after 1824) attended around 1770 the studio of Cuvilliés in Munich, then - the School of Fine Arts in the same town. In 1778, he was a pupil at the Academy of Paris, after which he returned to Munich, where he worked for the Court. Around 1814 he established himself in Vienna, where he died probably after 1824.
