Peale, Raphaelle - portrait of a lady
This miniature portrait is unsigned, but looks to be American. The auction house who sold it attributed it to Nathaniel Rogers, but it looks different when compared to most examples of his work.
Another possibility is Raphaelle Peale, as the sky effect is similar to the way he usually painted the sky, but this is only a tentative attribution.
The sitter is not known. 532
