Signed and dated "1801", this work is a very rare find at the current antique market (we were able to locate on the Web only one auction record in the past thirty years). It is an important work of Spanish, turn of the 19th century miniaturist, several of whose works are owned by Museum Prado in Madrid - Guillermo Ducker.

Guillermo (actually Willem) Ducker was a Dutch-born portrait miniature artist, who was mentioned as working in Madrid between 1799 and 1813. It is known that Francisco de Goya, in his 1799 letter to King Carlos IV, brings the latter's attention to Ducker and recommends him as the best and most capable miniaturist to portray the imperial family; in the same letter, he is appealing to the King to free Ducker from imprisonment, so that he can immediately proceed to work.
Ducker's expressive miniatures strongly resemble works of famous French miniaturist of the same period, Jean Urbain Guerin. For further information about Ducker, as well as his other works, see our images nr.9-14.

Provenance: Honolulu Nuseum, Hawaii, USA (sold through Ebay-broker as a part of collection of portrait miniatures; the museum was looking to replenish its funds for further acquisitions - see our image nr.8).
