Clearly signed "E. Terroux" and inscribed on verso "Vue de Vevey" it is a portrait of a young gentleman in redingote (presumably a resident of Swiss town Vevey on the North-East bank of the Lake Geneva). It is also a very rare miniature on ivory by (known chiefly as an enamel artist) Genevan female artist Mlle Elisabeth Terroux.

Mlle Elisabeth Terroux was born in Geneva on July 25, 1759 as a daughter of local clock-maker Abraham Terroux. She studied painting on enamel in Geneva and was a pupil of F. Favre. She gained acclaim not only at home but also in Russia, where she became a popular artist.
Schidlof refers to her as to one of the best miniaturists on enamel of her time.
Works of Mlle Elisabeth Terroux can be seen (among others) at the Louvre.
