Found through the Swiss antique trade, is is a superior quality miniature portrait. It shows a young (aristocratic?) lady, her torso turned three-quarters to her right, her face and gaze turned toward the viewer. She is wearing a black Empire gown with red scarf. It is a very typical and (as we are 100% certain) absolutely authentic work of well-known Viennese miniaturist of early 19th century Friedrich Luwig von Vieth (for comparison see our image nr.7).

Friedrich Ludwig von Vieth von Golssenau (1768 Dresden - 1848 Meissen), while an officer in the Saxony Army, took part in the exhibition at the Academy of Dresden with several small portraits in silverpoint. According to Thieme-Becker, he was supposed to have been studying miniature painting from Giovanni Casanova. After giving up his military career in 1800, he had specialized in miniatures and soon settled in Vienna, according to Schidlof. Thieme-Becker implies that it was in 1812, that he applied for leisure time to go to Vienna and has received an approval of the Saxonian King to do so, as well as full board for his whole stay there. Moreover, an extension for his stay until 1815 was later also approved. An inheritance that he received in 1819 allowed him to stay in Vienna permanently, and it was supposedly only shortly before his death, that he returned to his native Saxony.
In Vienna, Vieth von Golssenau was especially influenced by H.F. Fueger. Some of his works are reminiscent of those by Richard Cosway. He became a favorite portraitist of Archduke Carl and his wife Henriette - a status that allowed him a good access into the best Viennese Society. It was then that he became like Daffinger, one of the most favorite portrait miniaturists of Vienna.
