The portrait miniature was painted by the artist Charles-Louis Glardon (1825-1887). Glardon was a Swiss enameller made famous by his exceptionally fine enamel portraits. He was a very talented draughtsman who aimed to 'paint on the paste exactly as one paints on a canvas' (Emaux et Miniatures, Musée d'art et d'histoire, Genève, 1955, p. 20). He was trained by his equally famous and talented brother Jacques Aimé Glardon (1815-1862 ).
