1857 Painting by A. Esnaurrizar

Anyone know who A. Esnaurrizar is? I picked up this small painting and have only been able to find a few auction results on ArtNet.com from a few years ago. I think he was a Mexican artist and seems to have done quite a few military portraits? If anyone has more info., I'd love to hear about it.

Other images.

I think you've identified the right artist, but can't find anything more about him than you have. I'm sure you saw another by him that's oil on ivory. If yours is, too, be careful handling it.

Very nice find!

I'm pretty sure it's on ivory. It's very thin, creamy white and somewhat translucent. I'm scared to handle it too much so I've just been keeping it in it's case.
