Exclusively attractive portrait miniature from 1790s demonstrates in full scale a great changes happened in art after the French Revolution. Background filled with shimming air intensifies the filling of intimacy in unspoken dialogue between sitter I viewer. The model seems to be caught in a moment of interrupted reading and it also reinforced the immediacy of perception. Such approach was very common in milieu of generation of painters of old school formed before the revolution.
The miniature recently was cleaned and restored by Bernd Pappe
