Accordind to sitter's dress and hairstyle this miniature was executed in early 1830s, i. e. shortly after the young lady's wedding.
It is an earliest known portrait of Guidobaldine Gräfin (Countess) von Kuefstein, nee Princess von Paar (our comparison image nr.10 shows her 5-10 years later).
Guidobaldine was born on 2 December 1807, in Vienna as daughter of Karl Prince von Paar and his wife Guidobaldine, nee Countess Cavriani (see our web # 38348 ).
On 1 July 1830, in Vienna she married 13 years her senior Austrian diplomat (in 1845-1856 envoy in Dresden) Franz Seraphicus Count von Kuefstein (see our image nr.12). Some later she was awarded Austrian Ladies Order of Star Cross ("Sternkreuzorden") and title "Palastdame" (lady-in-waiting). She gave birth to five children (three survived).
Guidobaldine died on 14 June 1874, in Vienna.
This miniature is an outstanding work of one of the few best Austrian portrait miniaturists of 19th century, Emanuel Thomas Peter.
Emanuel Thomas Peter (1799 Jaegerndorf - 1873 Vienna) was a very well-known Austrian portrait miniaturist of the 19th century. From 1818 he studied at the Vienna Academy, at first architecture and then miniature painting under the famous Moritz Michael Daffinger. He copied a lot of Daffinger's miniatures with such artistic skill, that it is often impossible to distinguish between copies and originals. After a stay in Silezia Peter returned to Vienna in 1830 and became there one of the leading miniaturists. His best works were created between 1830 and 1850s.
