Regretably, the images of this portrait do not adequately demonstrate its vitality, nor the amount of detail the artist has included. It is quite large for a miniature at 130 mm x 80 mm.
The miniature is signed on the pedestal at the lower right "Alessandro Curion Roma 1912".
Curion is not recorded in Blattel and the only other example by him that has been found on the Internet, is a miniature signed and dated 1905 in the Ploiesti Museum, Roumania.
However, given the quality of this miniature, there must be other examples in existence and this example provides a good reference point.
The rear is stamped with his address; 22 Via Babuino, Rome, Italy.
The sitters are unknown, but the portrait was acquired from Argentina, so presumably the family emigrated to Argentina. 1220
