Lot Essay

The sitter is probably Mathilde (b. 1826) or her sister Cornelia Charlotte (b. 1828) von Vrints von Treuenfels, both sisters of Alexander (see lot 129).
For a very similar miniature by Herman, see the exhibition catalogue Autissier et le portrait miniature en Belgique, Brussels, Kredietbank, 1998, no. 97.
