Giovanni Battista (Giambattista) Gigola (or Cigola) was born in 1767 in Brescia and died in Milan in 1841. He commenced his studies in Italy; in ca. 1800 Gigola traveled to Paris, where he joined the studio of Isabey. According to Leisching, he may have participated in several exhibitions in Paris beginning from 1803. Sometime later he returned to Milan, where he was a protégé of the viceroy Eugene, Duke of Leuchtenberg (Eugene de Beauharnais). Besides miniatures on ivory, Gigola also painted on enamel. In fact, he is considered the artist who reintroduced this technique to Italy. He also drew illustrations for Byron and Lodovico da Porto. Schidlof says, his miniatures show no influence of his master Isabey, they are of a typical Italian technique, with slightly dull coloring and the backgrounds painted in gouache.
