An imitation of a cameo (incidentally, also its author's favorite technique!), it is a miniature on ivory showing (in profile) Queen Marie-Antoinette of France. There is a great likelihood that this work was done by well-known late-18th-century French miniaturist, Piat-Joseph Sauvage (for comparison, CLICK HERE FOR OTHER WORKS OF THIS ARTIST IN OUR POSSESSION).

Piat-Joseph Sauvage (1744 Tournai - 1818 ibidem) studied in Tornai under A.F. Gilles and R. Malaine, and later went to perfect his art to Antwerp, where he had M. Gaeraerts and G. van Spaendonck as masters. He painted chiefly "grisailles": either portraits in profile or genre subjects (usually mythological), in miniature and also in oils. He was also a painter on porcelain and enamel. In 1774 he became a Royal Painter of the King of the Netherlands, lived in 1774-1808 in Paris (from 1781 "Agree" of the Parisian Royal Academy, from 1783 its member). From 1776 he was also a member of Academies of Lille and Toulouse, and from about the same time - of Academy of St. Luc, where he had exhibited in 1774. He was the Royal Miniaturist of Prince de Conde and of King Louis XVI. In 1781 he became associate and in 1783 - member of the Academy of Paris, exhibited at the Salon of the same year, and continued his exhibits until the year of his death. During the French Revolution he became an anti-royalist, and in 1795 Commandant of the National Guards Bataillon. From 1808 until his death he lived in his native Tournai, where he was a professor at the local academy. Schidlof writes "Sauvage was a remarkable artist. It is he, Bourgeouis and De Gault who are the masters of the miniatures in "grisaille", imitating bas-reliefs and cameos. His miniatures were often used to decorate the sides of the beautiful gold "boites a cages"". Most of the French collections, many foreign one, as well as numerous museums, contain works by this artist.
