Comment:

Exhibited in the portrait gallery at the Palace at Wilanow are two oval portraits by Kosinski, similar in size to the Hermitage piece. One of them is the artist’s self portrait (66,5 × 53,0), while the other one is the portrait of his wife Maria Kosinski (67, 2 × 53,8). Both pieces date to around 1803. Most probably the Hermitage portrait was created at the same time.
