High qualitative miniature on ivory in the magnificent original period fire gilt bronze frame was executed in 1847 . The miniature depicting due to the back side original description by Dr.P.Bisch (relate of the sitter) in French : " Madame Bertrand, born Drian, the wife of miniature artist Louis Bertrand, which died in 1850 as 51-year old. He was our cousin. (..Noel). Dr.Paul Bisch". Due to the very similar stilistic detaills and time of creation we attributed this miniature to the hand of French miniaturist Cecile Villeneuve (1824 - 1901). For comparison see additional photos of other miniatures by Villeneuve.
