Giuseppe Tresca was born in the second half of the 18th century in Naples and died in Palermo in 1816. He was a church painter, portrait miniaturist and engraver. Among his religious works is his 1793 painting executed for the Church of St. Leonardo in Palermo.
A lot of miniatures painted by Tresca in the late 18th century of the members of the Neapolitan Royal family are in the collection of the House of Habsburg in Vienna.

Schidlof says (see our additional image with a clip from his book "Miniature in Europe"): "...Tresca certainly stayed in France for a time". And indeed, this miniature is (with a very great possibility!) a portrait of a French lady. For a long time it belonged to the famous Parisian collection Bernard-Franck.
Bernard-Franck was a veteran of the 1870 Franco-Prussian War, who later in life became a wealthy manufacturer of military equipment. He had a very important collection of paintings and works of art from the Napoleonic Epoch (see our additional image).

This miniature is illustrated in the dictionary "Les Peintres et Miniature actifs en France 1650-1850" by Nathalie Lemoine-Bouchard (published in spring 2008; see our image nr. 10).
