This miniature painting is believed to be the earliest known self-portrait of pioneering artist Marie Ellenrieder (1791-1863), the first woman admitted to the Academy of Art in Munich.  It was probably painted while she was a student of the noted miniaturist Joseph Einsle, before her admission to the Academy.
