This item formerly belonged to collection of Viennese Jewish industrialist Sigmund Mandl (1854-1910), who was the founder of Hirtenberger cartridge factory by Vienna. This large English miniature of supreme quality (according to the sitter's dress and hairstyle, it was painted in ca. 1795), was reproduced (with attribution to English artist John Opie) in sale catalogue of Vienna auction house "Leo Schidlof", 6-7 June 1921, Lot 180 (see our image nr.8). Still before, in 1911, it was reproduced as color plate in standard source on portrait miniatures - Ernst Lemberger's "Meisterminiaturen aus Fünf Jahrhunderten", Stuttgart, 1911 (see our image nr.9)
Our comparison images nr.10-13 show several works of John Opie.
John Opie (1761 St Agnes by Truro - 1807 London) was a celebrated English portrait painter, member of the London Royal Academy, who (according to Daphne Foskett) "said to have painted miniatures".
